    It was an absolutely joy to be apart of this festival. Even in such trying circumstances, the team did a wonderful job in communicating and supporting us sharing our work. A public link was shared whereby films could be viewed online - again very nicely organised and conducted. Get behind this wonderful festival, submit your stories, follow their socials and hopefully this will continue to grow.

    Online is decent but not preferred yet it's what we are currently stuck with at this pandemic moment in time...
