    We were truly honoured and humbled to be the only Australian film to screen at CWFF in an array of films from all over the world. We hope that Doctor Moron rocked the island. Communication and support from the CWFF crew was very professional. Congrats on a huge success.

    Thank you Chris. It was so create to screen your unique film. Posters up all over the island. Can't wait to see your next film.

    Participating in this festival was a truly unique and incredible experience. The location on Galiano Island in BC Canada was remote and beautiful. The people, true to Canada’s reputation, we’re inviting, friendly, and helpful. Small but surprising, it’s an adventure that is definitely worth the trip.

    Thank you for the kind review. We did our best and can't wait to do it again next year. We were very impressed with the films we got from all over the world. Not to mention the amount of female Directors was outstanding.
