  • I wish that I could have attended the festival because the film line up looked very good and the festival seems to be very well organized. All the communication with the festival directors was very professional. Anytime that I had a question it was answered promptly and the festival also gave some very good suggestions on how to promote the films while in Mumbai. I highly recommend this festival to filmmakers a nd I hope that next time I'll be able to visit Mumbai.

  • Although I couldn’t attend myself i had the opportunity for me to send my colleague to represent me and according to him, it was a fanstastic place to meet professional and media. I gave us the excellent opportunity to explore avenues of distribution in india. I strongly recommend the festival to those who are looking for a platform to bring their creativity to the outside world
