    I've been at the festival during an atypical edition, due to the pandemic. However, it's clearly a worthwhile festival, which offers films from a complex and therefore very interesting territory, in a very intimate and relaxed atmosphere. This is a festival that focuses on the variety of film genres and the selection is very careful to create a rather interesting narrative path for the public. I've been very pleased to be part of it.

    The festival was very intimate and personal, communicatuion was excellent. Even though they had to reschedule a lot, I felt well informed. Very glad that my film "Home is where the scars are from" got the Audience Award. Thanks for a nice festival day and good luck for the 2021 edition!
