  • It is a huge honor to have been selected in IndiFest Festival de Cinema Indigena de Barcelona. Though we weren't able to attend in person, we always feel we're part of the in-person festival. The communications were always warm and the festival collaterals are so beautiful, they exude the beauty, enthusiasm and kindness of the organizers.

    The festival is active in its posts and we've followed all of them, giving us the feeling that we've been really part of the festivities. Thank you so much IndiFest team! Our 2022 was so meaningful and you've been a huge part of the treasured memories. Our gratitude to all of you!
