    Wish to give a big shout out to the organizers on their communication throughout the process. The logistics of submitting were smooth and seamless. We were fortunate and blessed to have our film selected for an award in the Short Documentary category and Anselmo reached out to us often and immediately after the festival. They also had a very nice website that was updated often as selections were announced and winners announced. We were unable to attend but have full faith that it was a quality International Film Festival Weekend. This festival is on our list to submit future films for consideration. Would love to attend should a new film of ours be accepted in future years. Cheers to everyone at the Montevideo World Film Festival. Bravo!
