    So disapppointed.
    Depite winning our category, we have received no communication from the organisers, no promised introductions and no PDF winner`s certificate
    I thought it was perhaps an oversight, but several emails have been sent and we have received no response and so I`m not sure what think
    Still hoping though!

    We're so grateful for the incredible support from the team at Out Of the Can. As proud as we are of our film we weren't expecting to win both Best Supporting Actress and Best Thriller/ Mystery. If we could change anything, we would ask that it be easier to watch the films as we really struggled to find them on DocBox and we'd really love some networking events to get to meet other creatives and find out what they're up to.
