  • This was very exciting to hear, that my spy story «The Llandudno File» was selected for Best Screenplay at the Lisbon Monthly Film Festival! Thank you so much for considering it! Next year I'd like to attend - Lisbon is a delightful city to visit!

  • I was honoured to have my dark-comedy short film "Bucky" an Official Selection, and my dark-comedy thriller "Private Number" winning Best Short Script!
    Impressively communicative, with high-end certificates and laurels, I look forward to submitting future projects to this festival!
    Thanks again!

    Response from festival:

    Hi Ioannis, we don’t understand your comment.
    Your film was selected between so many great films. You should be happy.
    But we are available to listen to your comments and do better next time.
