    I was selected for the festival with the music video "Splatterhead" and it was an honor for me to be in FICIME. I couldn't went to the festival but I followed everything through the social networks and newsletter (which always had a very rich content, the interviews were excellent). I found the festival extremely well organized and the communication was great. Even at a distance, I got to know several artists and works that I will definitely follow. I would like to thank the organization, it was amazing to be part of it !!
