    Thanks for nominating my movie Two Late! I learned about the news from the festival's Facebook page. The only complaint (apart from not winning :) ) I can make is that they only selectively tagged the films and the directors in the Facebook posts. Mine weren't, despite the fact that both me and my movie have Facebook pages. This wasn't rectified after I made a comment about it.

    La dirección que toma el Barcelona Planet es una respuesta esperada hace años. Tiene un sentido de industria acorde a un mundo que se mueve mas en línea. Nos gustaría saber si hay maneras de continuar moviendo nuestra película a través del fest, no tiene que acabarse el encanto como en los festivales tradicionales.
