  • This was an online festival, so I was unable to give a rating for 'hospitality', but otherwise, this event is TOP-NOTCH! They did a remarkable job of communicating with the filmmakers from all over the globe, and they made beautiful promotional videos featuring us that were posted several times per day on social platforms. I'd definitely submit to Hibrido again! All good vibes!
