    Unfortunately we had no opportunity to be present at a festival personally, but organizers regularly updated photos and news its social networks. Also they were always ready to contact - is always valuable. It was very pleasant that our small film "The Last Cruise" has been awarded a special mention! With pleasure I advise all - this friendly festival and we will participate in him the next time
