Overall Rating

    I was not able to attend this festival but I was very impressed with the communication with the staff, the quality of the films that were chosen and the intelligent description of my film by a programmer. I have also heard that this is considered one of the best environmental film festivals worldwide. Very honored to be selected out of so many submissions.
