  • Namaste,
    It's very encouraging to see Film festival like Rome Independent Prisma Awards. They are quite prompt in communication and very efficiently works on daily basis on the selection of the film projects. I wish i can come there personally some day but that's a dream. Best wishes for upcoming month and really looking forward to it that they create more value as they are doing their best.
