Overall Rating
  • Tonye Faloughi-Ekezie

    Three of my projects were selected, however no one contacted me from the festival at all. I didn't know whether I was to attend and when my projects were to be screened. Absolutely no communication and no value to me.

    However I am sure it is a worthwhile festival in a growing animation sector.
