Overall Rating
  • I loved the place and the selection of shortfilms, they were great!
    But the shorts selected for the market, mine amongst them, were supposed to be projected and they cancelled the projections two times and they were never shown!!
    It is a pity, specially after travelling in person to see it there and to try to sell it to the interested distributors and exhibitors that were there.
    Great event to network, but there could be better organization and more activities during the day.
