    We are so excited to screen your film. The DRC was put on lockdown in September because of COVID19, so we had to delay the festival until November. The festival will run from November 2-7. We will have the program and official list then. Congratulations!

    Thank you! We were thrilled by the quality of films submitted. Because public meetings were forbidden during September due to COVID19, the festival itself was postponed until November. We are eager to screen your film to our large audience.
