    A very friendly festival who really put in an effort to make it a fun event for filmmakers, had great hosts and streamed the awards ceremony live online for those who couldn't be there in person. Had I not just come back from a trans-Atlantic trip, I would have loved to be there in person.

    I was elated on finding my DOCUMENTARY.. LIVING ON THE EDGE - DEGLAMOURIZING BOLLYWOOD as one of the official FINALIST. The festival stands out in many areas.. It was my first experience when I got to know that they send by post special diploma to finalist and digital versions of it on net. Excellent communication. Queries answered, website updated... What more can a struggling independent documentary film maker hope or ask for. Thanks are due to staff. Looking forward to receiving the diploma. Would like to come back to the festival with my next one. God bless..

    It was a great experience for me to attend to this new film festival. I´m very happy that my short film Humans was selected to this film festival and that I met fantastic good people like Hector Luis Bustamante. I really hope that I can join them next year again. The networking of this festival was really briliant.
