  • Our music video "Move On" got selected for best video clip. We couldn't attend but I watched the festival day by day via live stream. This one seems like a huge and really pleasant one with a lot of enthusiasm towards young emerging filmmakers. There were workshops as well as guest attendances by industry pros. Hope to see a lot from this beautiful festival soon!
