  • Wonderful little festival, for such a small one it has so much energy and effort put in from the staff and everyone involved with the festival. It is one lovely day of non stop screenings and hanging out with other directors. I love this festival very much!

  • Very nice and cute festival in Switzerland. Unfortunately I couldn't attend because of the next project but I definitely will be there next year to visit. Marjolaine tried her best to help me to join them in Savigny. The communication is super fast the team is very well organised.
    Submit, it's worth it.
