    Paris Play Film Festival was adapted to fit Covid regulations with great professionalism. That means hard graft behind. Great response to everyhting needed. That means, friendly communication .

    P.S. When a festival adorns its banner with the immortal existence of nouvelle vague's priestess (Anna Karina), the participation gesture is innate. You feel swathe of a lambency..
