    No report from the sensus festival? I don't know if there was a festival? At least they collected the fees.

    Response from festival:

    Hello. Photos from the film festival are available in our social networks, for example: We also uploaded photos from this year's festival to the filmfreeway platform. The status of your film is a semi-finalist (not an official selection), we sent you an email with the laurels via filmfreeway. About the meaning of the status of semi-finalists: We give laurels to the semifinalists to help attract the attention of other selectors! We wish you success!
