    I was highly impressed with the quality of films screened at the Germany International Film Festival. I was also pleasantly surprised that I became a winner for the Special Jury Award for my feature film, EL DERECHO DE JESUS and the Rising Star Award for my short script, JESSIE.
    The festival director, Jose Claudio Silva and his team were very professional, friendly and made me feel like a part of an extended family, I travelled from Los Angeles, CA to Munich, Germany to attend the festival and I was not disappointed. Those filmmakers that are thinking of submitting their work, should consider this festival. I will definitely send future film projects to this festival.

    What a truly wonderful festival! Jose, Elaine, Alice and Marcelo you make the whole event come alive with a kindness, camaraderie and warmth that few film festivals come close to matching. You are an unbelievably fantastic team who make the filmmakers the priority - it's impressive how organized you are and how much support you give to the filmmakers. I was delighted to have had my film screened in the beautiful city of Munich and fully enjoyed the Q&A after - but the biggest thrill for me was to win best short film - I felt so honoured and proud, and those are feelings I will cherish forever - thank you so much!... I fully recommend submitting your work to this festival as it offers great networking opportunities in a down-to-earth environment - a great way to make lifelong friends - and the passion and hard work that Jose and his family put into it makes it overall a highly rewarding experience... so get submitting!

    I was delighted to be able to attend the second Germany International Film Festival. What a great event. A wonderful opportunity for local German filmmakers to exhibit there work, along with a large cast of supporting international filmmakers. Jose and his Crew did a wonderful job organizing this festival and finding the perfect venue in the gorgeous city of Munich. Outstanding quality and value. Do consider applying to the festival. If accepted, you will not be disappointed with the festival, and will be very impressed with the organizers and the networking opportunities. Outstanding all around. Thank you again, Jose, Marcel, Alice, Elaine and Eduardo. Terrific job!

    The Germany International Film Festival was a wonderful experience for all of the "Holy Spirit" team! As we live in Munich, a big group of our cast and crew could attend personally. The festival was well organized, everyone was friendly and easy, and for the evening they had prepared a very interesting compilation of short trailers of all the nominated films. We could watch high quality material throughout, so we felt really honored to be a part of this festival and to win the award as „Best Feature Film“. We are sure this will help to bring our movie to the cinemas! This festival is held by people who love exceptional movies, ones that are no mainstream and sometimes break the rules. Thank you Jose, Eliane and the whole festival team!

    We were most gratified to be part of this year's festival, and were impressed by the arrangements made to obtain copies of films selected and to publicise featured movies and screening schedules. Effectively organised and recommended to filmmakers considering whether to submit in future years.
