    For me it has been an honor to be able to screen my first short film Harria Herria at the festival in these times of pandemic.
    The festival has a wonderful team that have done an excellent, unbeatable job. In addition, the short film was awarded as the winner of the best musical short. Amazing!
    I am very grateful!
