    To have been "Official Selection" at the quoted "Mister Vorsky Film Festival" in Ruma, Serbia, in June 2020, with my dance film "Nude Landscapes", was wonderful. A festival with a very professional attitude that also knew how to find solutions in this pandemic.

    This is an amazing festival with wonderful organizers and some really talented filmmakers presenting their work. It was a great honor to have my film, A Flying Squirrel's Tale, recognized as an Official Selection by a film festival that really cares about filmmakers. Attention All Filmmakers: Bookmark this festival for next year and every year!
