    Very strange festival.

    My movie was selected but no one contacted me.

    I just discovered that I was selected because FilmFreeWay notified a status change in my submission.

    I sent them an email but no one answered me.

    You search the Festival's website and facebook, but don't have any post about the event. No photos, no texts, no videos, nothing about.

    I can say that I have not a positive experience attending these festival.

    Regards.
