  • One of the best festivals I have ever seen on this platform!
    The organization was fantastic in these covid days.
    They listened to the filmmakers on social media with some online talks, this is a thing 95% of the festivals don't do.
    Besides, the organizers are welcoming and affectionate people.
    Good work.
    Best of luck for future ones.
