    It was an honor and a privilege to be selected for this festival. The fact that the festival went ahead in these times is testament to the Ukraine's resilience and fortitude. I am humbled that MAENAD FEVER was included in this festival. The short film shown at the start of the online showing was affecting and devastating. I give all my support and love to the Ukraine. Regards, Tamara

  • Thanks to the festival, to my countrymen, for choosing our film Bullshit. It is a great rarity to come across a festival where you can watch the films of the preselection participants. Thanks again. I wish the further development of the festival, but the main thing is the victory of our country Ukraine over the Russian invaders!
