    Thanks a lot for screening my film: 'Ringo Rocket Star and his song for Yuri Gagarin'. I want to thank the super friendly organizers and I would happily submit again and go to the festival in future!

  • We had several clients screen there this year, and it was a delight that a festival not only selects a great variety of content (we had an experimental, animation and more involved) but that they were very communicative too. Bravo!
