    I won the Grand Prix with my film which was the first award I ever won. The communication was good and I was so happy with the experience. It’s a beautiful festival in a beautiful town and I’m very grateful for the award. Hopefully someday I’ll be able to attend it in person! Thank you!

    Extraordinary experience, more than a festival. Our team will never forget the time we spent in Tbilisi during those 4 days; amazing hospitality, rich program, technically great screenings and awards ceremony as well as fun get-togethers, dinners and dance parties. Georgia's capital is a wonderful place, hidden gem among tourist destinations for sure. We are grateful for everything this festival offered. Greetings from Serbia
