    The festival looks great and happy we were selected. However, after one exchange through our sales agent we didn't hear anything about when the rescheduled event was going to take place, or what they might need from us if anything. For most of the year the only information was from the website, which said that the festival would be held in the fall due to instability in Greece. Totally understandable, but there was no communication from the festival at all otherwise. Today I received an email about LifeArt events coming up, only to find the website had changed and said that due to instability in Greece, the festival was already held in LA, and awards distributed. I'm assuming although we were selected we didn't screen at all, as we weren't approached for a DCP or any other materials. I appreciate difficulties in Greece at the moment, but this was really bad/zero communication from LifeArt. I'm putting 2 stars as it seems to be a decent festival, but I really have no idea as to what it's all about.
