    This is a highly professional team who places the filmmaker right at the centre of everything they do. Excellent selection, communication and loads of great content to advance and inform the filmmaker. The atmosphere at the festival was very positive. We were privileged to win the "Youth Jury" award - the very existence of which speaks volumes of the ethos this festival has when it comes to development of new talent. Excellent service and great promotion - I highly recommend!
