    Fantastic festival. I had the honour of winning the Best Horror Short this year with my film 'Low Tide', while last year my film 'Gridlock' won the Sandro Bolchi Award for Best Director. I was delighted to be a part of such a great festival and to win the awards was such an amazing experience. Thanks to Marco and all the team for their help and continued support. Highly recommended.
