    Thanks a lot for selecting my short film "Sunday Roast" to your 2022 festival! Although I could not attend in person the overall competition was great and well organised. Hope to be back again this year!

    This a great festival. We were happy to be a part of this with our screenplay submission. We were especially happy to win an award for our screenplay. Go Go Film Festival! Thanks for a great experience.

  • A true no-nonsense punk gem of a festival! There were snakes, there was fire, there was blood, all the good stuff. I'm so happy I could have been part of it. Thank you!
