    I had a very wonderful time at So Limitless and Free Film Festival! Their screening was amazing. The candidates come from so many different countries which include German, America, France, England, Canada, Japan and so on. The screening films attracted me a lot. They showed the strong expression and the directors' deep thinking of the world. I had a very nice conversation with the festival manager after the screening. It was a really meaningful festival!

    This is a really wonderful festival with an awesome and unique set of themes! The organizers are so welcoming, supportive and encouraging. It was a real honor to be a part of the first edition of the So Limitless and Free Festival and to win an award for my film "The Camera's Tears." The communication is fantastic, and the screening event was really impressive. I highly recommend this festival!

    Great new festival held by a friendly couple in the artsy city of Montréal! The communication was smooth and the selection of films was very good. I was kept in the loop with anything happening at the festival. I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to showcase its work in an independent serious festival! Cheers and good luck to many more awesome events like that! :)
