    This festival was a real surprise. Communication with the festival worked smoothly and the festival representative was friendly. I recommend the festival to everyone. I would also like to thank the festival for surprising me with the best film award in the category Fantastic Feature Film. I wish I could have been there to receive my award. Best of luck Maracay International Film & Video Festival for the future.
