    Nice online festival. Great to see my short film "Work From Home" pick up a few awards -- Gold Award for Best Drama, Silver Award for Best Director, and Platinum Award for Best Actress. Thanks so much and look forward to submitting again!

    Thank you very much for the opportunity to share my film. I'm very grateful to have been awarded an Honorable Mention! It was much easier/faster to communicate with this festival via their 'contact' form on their website vs sending a direct email. Otherwise it was a very good experience!

    I highly recommend this festival. It's very well organised and as well as having a website they have a facebook page where they announce their selection of award winners.

    We were honoured to have the Finding Clive Teaser Trailer selected for a Platinum award. It's a lovely boost to our spirits and our project. Worth a go, I say!
