    So I was picked for the film fest but never received information of the location. The film fest is today June 22nd and still no email nor a phone call from them. This film fest is fake. Save your money. LOL They changed the date of the event Aug 5th 2022 once I posted this comment. I want my money back. You had no film festival. You didn't hold your part of the agreement. I want my money back.

    I was happy to be selected. I may not have won but it was the thrill of being competitive that was a win within itself. One of the festival’s to look for to have your work recognized.
