  • One might think that only winners would leave positive reviews about a festival here, but it is not so :-) Although my project did not win the 1st place in its category, it was shortlisted, and I highly appreciate the communication I had with the jury, their open-mindedness and readiness to share important information about possible development of my project in the future. I was also deeply impressed with the film that won in my category, it was truly amazing and I am sure it was the best one indeed.

  • When we set out to make “Behind the Name Shakespeare: Power, Lust, Scorn & Scandal,” we had no expectations it would be so well-received in the film community. After all, we made it on a fraction of usual documentary budgets and we practically invented a refreshingly new method of presenting a documentary. To date though, we have received 78 awards validating our hard work, and we are delighted to be selected by the Mediterranean Film Festival Cannes. Thank you very much and we look forward to the upcoming festival!
