    Hi there. I was unable to attend this festival, but the communication with the hosts was perfect. The program looks lovely and I wish I got some feedback on the screening of my film. I do wish I could attend. It looked like a wonderful place to visit and share my film. Thank you for the selection and wishing you all good times.
