    So far, I have not received any opinions regarding the film's release ?
    I don't know if the audience liked it or not ?

    For the first time we used the Filmfreeway platform, which we had not yet had a chance to fully explore and unfortunately, due to the record number of entries, we had very little time to communicate with the filmmakers individually. We apologise for this!
    We will try to change this next year. Thank you!
    The competition films were very well received and loved by the audience. Thank you to the creators!

    We were happy to be selected and, although there was very little communication from the festival, we hope that our film was enjoyed.
