    Im afraid, this is rather poorly organised festival that lacks many professional acumens to stand as an independent recognisable public event.
    I regret submitting my work here. Not only, there is very minimum communication using broken English, yet the statement says "we don't want to invite filmmakers to take part" however it lists on the programme that we proud ourselves to have filmmakers from all over the world, that will interact with the audience. This is the first festival that I felt cheated once submitted the fee. My film was selected to the programme, yet I would like to see some evidence of it on their website. It seem popular with Indian filmmakers so why to promote foreign titles and confuse people? Very poor, lacking professionalism, avoid if you can.

    for me it was a great pleasure to show the film to so many children at the festival. Thank you very much for the opportunity
