    The communication was excellent. Though I wasn't able to attend the screening, I was able to follow the updates on Instagram. Thank you for screening Clock-Boy!

  • We were honored to be a part of this film festival! Unfortunately we could not physically attend the actual festival, but we were kept up to date through their very active social media presence. Thank you for including us and running an overall well organized event!
