  • Super cool people, great experience!

    I was extremely excited to get selected by this festival, I believe there were really strong entries this year in general, hence the finalists selected were very different and therefore interesting.

    Due to the fact it was all online, a few things could have gone smoother, but that's just space for improvement. Personally, I'm really looking forward to see the growth of this festival and potentially enter again in the years to come with another dance piece. I'm sure I will.

    Definitely, would recommend for other filmmakers and dancers or dance filmmakers to enter for the years to come, it's a great place to show your creativity beyond the stage.

    thank you, TANZAHOi
