    Great to have you Ludmilla!

  • Thank you for making our documentary "Oleg" a finalist at the recent festival. Our director Nadia Tass, who lives in Melbourne, would have personally attended if COVID did not force the screenings to go digital. Despite this the communication was excellent and we found ourselves in good company. Thank you, Joan Borsten

  • It was an honor having my film "ALEXIS" be part of this monthly festival! We also received 3 nominations, which were greatly appreciated. The team communicated very well, and did a good job with online marketing. I'd happily return with my next project!
