    It was a beautiful experience. The artists behind this festival are very friendly and supportive,the location is awesome and I was happy to meet other young talented directors in the pre-festival party. It was the first time that I saw my film in the big screen so I want to thank New Generation Film Festival for the memories,your support in young filmakers and your great hospitality.

  • It was a wonderful experience! In this festival I celebrated my debut as a film director with the premiere of my first short film "Purple french fries" . The organizers made us all feel welcome and I got to meet other contestants in the pre-festival party. I recommend this festival to all the young filmmakers out there!
