    The FICMA/ SUNCINE festival was amazing! The people were super nice, everything was organized really well. The communication was great, the locations were really nice. I am definitely submitting a film next year again. Looking forward to next year. I would for sure recommend the festival!

    The festival screened my film continuously in the Science Center in Barcelona for a few days, making me very proud. Communication with the festival was great, and they later took my film "The River of the Kukamas" into the schools and universities of their partnering organization in Mexico as well. It was a privilege to screen there!

    This is an outstanding festival run by a seriously dedicated team of knowledgeable staff. They not only love film and the environment, but clearly really enjoy working together to further advances in sustainable film and the message of climate crisis.

    I could only attend half of this extensive festival, but I loved every minute of it. We met a wide diversity of filmmakers and writers from around the world, and had fabulously fun evenings spent in terrific company with likeminded people. There was a range of events, excellent hospitality, parties with amazing food (and Cava!) in boutique restaurants with vegan options, I could go on and on raving about SUNCINE... it's more like a global family than a film festival; do not miss the chance to be a part of it!

    Cuando me comunicaron que mi pel铆cula hab铆a sido seleccionada, me dijeron que estaba en la secci贸n de Miradas. Pero para mi sorpresa, el cortometraje lo pusieron en una secci贸n no competitiva. Cuando escrib铆 para solicitar una aclaraci贸n sobre esto, nunca me respondieron. No me parece que sea el trato que deba recibir un director por parte de un festival.

    Response from festival:

    Hola Juan Manuel.
    Siento no haver respondido antes tu mail. no tengo constancia de 茅l, lo he estado buscando antes de responderte y no lo he sabido ver, pero seguramente se me debi贸 pasar o borrar por lo no dudo nos pediste una aclaraci贸n y tu malestar.
    En nuestros reglamentos, la inscripci贸n Miradas tambi茅n inclu铆a el PETIT FICMA producciones para escuelas y ni帽os y tu film entr贸 en esta Secci贸n.
    Sentimos mucho esta falta de comunicaci贸n y te pedimos disculpas. Desde el Festival trabajamos para dar la mayor visibilidad a vuestros trabajos y somos conscientes que sin vosotros nosotros no existir铆amos por lo que sentimos tu malestar. Un fuerte abrazo
