    Le Mup is an awesome festival. I had a great time. The organizers, Axel and Viviane made me feel right at home and the entire team is very friendly and helpful. All the films selected were very good and were projected on a large screen with excellent picture and sound quality. The overall atmosphere is very casual and fun with an attentive and appreciative audience. Can’t wait for the next Le Mup.

    Awesome festival, the organisers were absolutely lovely to deal with and supportive throughout - just wish we'd have been able to make it out there, hopefully we'll get the chance in the future!
