    Amazing Film Festival! Our film "Face Recognition" even got an Jury mention! We feel very honoured. The virtual Q&A session was a blast too!! From selection to the end of the festival, the level of communication was really good. Thank you Video Festival Imperia. One of my best festival experience so far.

    What a wonderful festival! Unfortunately, I couldn't make it to the festival physically but a member of our team in Italy did and he had great reviews about the festival and most importantly, the audience that saw our film! It gives me great joy to be a part of festival. We just finished production for our latest film and I am definitely submitting. I hope if selected, I will be able to attend next year! Cheers.
