    What a wonderful festival! Just like it should be, it's about films and people. Obama said, face to face we are better people. In our industry it's so hard to see our audiences and listen to what people say about our films (thanks for putting your discussions on FB) I hope you'll prosper and grow!

    Great cooperation with the team who are eager to bring to the public the vision of filmmakers of allover the world and tell their stories. Wonderful way to connect people but unfortunately I could not attend there - i hope my short documentaries " spoke " for me.
