Overall Rating

  • Humbled to be among such incredible talent at this year's virtual version of the festival. Each piece was a joy to behold. My piece was the shortest in the festival coming in at just 20 seconds (in honor of the undeniably unpredictable year that was 2020). The live screening was like watching experimental / moving image works among friends. Highly recommend (même si votre français est au mieux médiocre).
