    It was wonderful festival- the bridge between people and peoples! Team of the feature film "Bumping Bliss" thank the creators of the Independent Film Festival in Milan. It's so important to see people's faces and hear their voices. To understand that everywhere in the world people give birth works of art in the name of truth and happiness, love and justice! I wish health and peace, creative success, friendship and love!!! It's a pity that this year's festival is online. I'd come with the "Bumping Bliss" team! Hello from Russia!!!

  • If this festival is not on your radar, it should be. Their communication and hospitality are on point. Like all festivals in 2020 they to had to pivot to an online platform and they did an amazing job. The platform looked great, the films looked great, and the online awards ceremony was wonderful. I look forward to being able to attend in person in the future. Bravo e complimenti!!
