    I was not able to attend the festival but the staff were very communicative and helpful, answering all my questions and keeping me updated with the progress leading up to the festival. I had a look at the line up and it seemed fantastic, I hope to attend and work again with the festival in the future.

    Diversions is a true celebration of independent cinema: the screenings show a wide range of conceptual innovation in different genres and formats, and their industry program is a great way for filmmakers to network and hang out. I've been to few festivals that took as much care with hospitality, picking up participating filmmakers at the airport and sorting out accommodation. If you're looking for an event run by people who are knowledgeable and passionate about art cinema (with a beautiful location to boot), Diversions should be high up on your list.
