  • This festival was a very pleasant surprise. You would never know it’s only been running for 3 years. Communication was excellent, the reception unforgettable, and they market and advertise like seasoned pros. Intimate and community oriented, with dinner provided each night under the stars. Thank you Dr Kapil Siddharth, Dr Geeta Chaturvedi, and of course the sophisticated jury for not only awarding our film QUEEN OF THE BEACH Best Documentary Feature... but making this an event I will never forget. I travelled there from Canada and would do it again.
