    It has an honor to have my short CHOICE have it's Mexican premiere at Cinematico. Even if sadly I couldn't attend the festival, everything went great. Good communication with the festival and a lot of social media presence, was nice to have them put all films on facebook as well as the festival programme. The selection looked really diverse and interesting. Hope it will go bigger and bigger with time!

    I was unable to attend but the communication was excellent. The events looked great and well attended on social media. The presentation of selected films before the festival was at the top. All films recieved a worm welcome through presenting photos and synopsis to the spectators. Beautiful programme was accesible through internet and to attending public. I felt really lucky to get selected. Communication was great and very friendly.
    Would love to participate in coming years!
