    Communication was good and responses were almost immediate. Despite it being their first year, they were well organized and responsive; I would recommend this Festival for anyone in the underwater genre of filming.

    Fantastic experience with Underwater film festival Neum. Thank you for having selected my short documentary film, "Negative Buoyancy, the story of a freediver" and being a finalist! Unfortunatelly, I could not travel to attend the festival, but you sent me photos and I am really regreting for not being there! It was amazing. I would also like to thank Ivo for all the help and guidance!

  • I absolutely LOVE this festival. Huge thank you to Ivo and all the team who put on the event and made it happen in difficult times.
    I'm so thrilled and honoured my film Mike & Maurice won the overall award and cannot thank the organisers enough for keeping me up to date with brilliant communication and going the extra mile to send me the trophy. Wonderful.
    So sorry I couldn't come out to the festival from the UK but I hope to visit soon to say thank you.
