    Though small, the festival screened an interesting and thought-provoking selection of short films. Its organizers were very welcoming of feedback and thoughts from the audience about the films they just watched, making this a qualitative festival that doesn't shy away from discussion. Thank you for awarding my film the Press Award!

    I unfortunately couldn't attend, so it was good to have such great communication from this festival, and it's very well organised. I love the idea of it, that the films compete through the managers of the festival first, and the best progress to the final, and the final is then viewed and judged by the audience. Thanks very much for selecting my film!
