  • Clear and timely communication with the festival. Thank you for the Best Sci-Fi award. Great to have our movie shown in a city "internationally known for its architecture and urban design."

    Thank you, Paul.

  • Great communication, they obviously put a lot of effort and enthusiasm into their festival, the artwork and awards. I'll definitely be submitting again in the future. Couldn't really give a proper grade for the networking as it wasn't a live event.
