    Thank you so much for screening my animated short "In Search Of Birds" at the 7th Chaniartoon. It was an honor for it to receive a Special Mention in the festival's 2023 Animation Award announcements.

    While I wasn't able to attend in person, it is very cool that the festival offers accommodations for filmmakers able to make the trip to Chania.
