    Being a Finalist at the EdiPlay International Film Festival for my documentary "Change The World" has been such an amazing experience from the moment I submitted to the final judging announcement. The impeccable communication, professionalism and care was what stood out for me. I felt valued and respected throughout the whole process and cannot wait to submit more of my work. I highly recommend this film festival to all independent filmmakers around the world. You won't regret it!
