    I had the pleasure to have my short film LE RISQUE ZERO selected at the 1st Chambal international film festival. I felt that the festival was organized in a very professional way. They always answered very quickly to my email messages and questions (before and after the festival). They also proposed reductions for accommodations. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to attend the festival but afterwards I had the pleasure to be informed that the film got a prize and a special mention. So they proposed to send the trophy (& certificates) by the post office (from India to France) which they did ! Unfortunately, many film festivals are not as respectful and don’t send trophies (which is a pity really). I find this Chambal’s policy a genuine mark of character, a respect for the films and also a great ambition for the future. I sincerelly hope to attend the festival in person soon with a new project. Thank you.
