    I am honored that my film "The Albino's Trees" won as the best film award and with the prize for the critique Blogos de Oro.
    Unfortunately I could not go to the venue, but in the near future I would like to visit Marbella. I appreciate the wonderful festival! I am looking forward to be sent the award plaque to Japan.

    Very happy to have the opportunity to screen at such a wonderful festival. It was a smooth process for the filmmaker and they made my film and myself feel welcomed and celebrated.

    The screening venue was fabulous - the best yet for our film. And the industry forum was very rewarding as an opportunity to talk to Spanish producers both formally and later informally over lunch. We were very thrilled to win best screenplay and best actress at the festival. Definitely recommend submitting.
