    I wasn't able to attend the screening but was very glad to learn that my film was well received there! The organizers were fantastic and the general vibe is very supportive!

    I’m very happy and very proud that my short film KIKO'S SAINTS has been selected by the festival, all the more since it won the first place in the 2019 Best of Festival Awards.
    Unfortunately I couldn't attend to present the film.
    I was very curious how the audience reacted to the screening.
    I wish I could be in Indianapolis to enjoy the festival.
    I wish all my best to all the festival team and once again many thanks for this selection and this price. I feel honoured
