  • I had a very bad experience. My short film was selected and out of nowhere, the festival was on pause for several months. Then they resumed the same edition with new rules and a supposed paid prize. My short film won one of the paid prizes, but I never received the money. Together with the producer, we complained more than three times and have not received a response. Is a scam.
