Overall Rating

    I was so happy with my film A RAPARIGA PROJECTADA/THE PROJECTED GIRL being selected for Martovsky FF. As I couldn't attend the festival due to the hight flight costs between Portugal and Serbia, since day one I asked the festival to send me some pictures or videos from the screening. I tried by e-mail, facebook, instagram. Until today, I didn't get any reply and no single picture from the screening. Plus, the festival never confirmed if the screening test (image, sound) went well before they actually screened it to the audience. Overall, I don't know anything how the screening went during the festival days. Terrible communication.

  • I have been following Martovski for few years already. It was always a wonderful experience. But the last, 71st edition was huge step forward. I hope that the festival will continue improving and that it will be able to invite more international guests in the future.
