    A great tourism film festival to attend.

    Great hospitality.
    Beautiful atmosphere.
    Great place for Networking.

    The scheduling of the screenings could be better. My suggestion is to separate it in more screenings of less time with a break in between them.

    Totally worth to apply and attend. It's a no miss.
    The Director of the festival Spomenka Saraga is a wonderful person.
