    Excellent! It was amazing and admirable to me when I understod my film (Panj - 5) from Iran is chosen as the Best picture of the september 2017 in an international film festival in USA. Not only for introducing my film as a winner. It showed the way of peace and communication between nations and civilizations is more precious than policy behavior. Thank you for your valuation on the submitted films without caring of difficulties between countries. You proof your festival only pay attention to art and culture. It's marvelous! I hope best to you.
