    A nice international platform to show your films.
    But, Selected films list is not available in the website or in the screening schedule. I am proud to share that my film SCHOOL BELL is selected in this Festival.

    The festival was held in good conditions.
    But the weakness of the festival was not the list of films on the site.
    There was no link to the videos on the site
