    This is my first feature film as a director. I am very grateful that my film was recognized by the festival. I was very excited and honored when I received the notification of the screening results.

    The festival staff was quick to respond and I appreciate the seriousness with which they took the film and the art.

    We hope that we will have the opportunity to hear feedback directly from the festival staff and audience at the real screenings, and we hope that we will be given that opportunity. We also hope that our films will be seen by new people through this festival.

    We hope that the festival will continue to grow and that many creators will be able to expand their activities to the world from this festival.
