    Thank you Gisela, we will continue to work...

  • We were very honoured to have received the Special Cortoons Festival award for our graduation film 'Small Hours' and have to say it was the most wholesome and inviting festival I have ever been to.

    The organisers treated us like family and movie stars all at once, making sure we were always taken care of and the atmosphere they created just felt like home away from home. We made so many new filmmaker friends and I'm sure we will come back with the next project!

    This is truly a special festival I wish everyone could experience. It will be really tough to top this experience from now on as they set the bar really high! Thank you form the bottom of our hearts!
