    I was so sad not to make it to this festival... had my tickets booked and then was ill and couldn't get there. By all accounts from the pictures / general feedback it was great - communication beforehand was really good and seems like the films went down very well with audiences. They got press in as well so reviews were published after the event, which was brilliant.

    The triple Six is a unique festival with a very high level. The first edition of the Triple Six shows the skill of a major festival; its selection was outstanding. I bet in a few years this festival will be one of the most important in Europe.

    A brilliant festival! Excellent communication and promotion. We've had some great attention for our short film since screening at Triple Six. I was gutted not to be able to make the festival, but a number of people contacted me afterwards to tell me how well the film was received by the audience, and we got some great reviews too. Definitely submit!
