    Top notch! Good communication from the start. I wasn't able to attend, but I enjoyed following the event and updates on Facebook and felt like a nice networking opportunity was created nonetheless. I won for Best Music Video and so honored to have been a part of this festival!

    It's good idea of the festival and I wish to the organizers a lot of success. Just one recommendation. Try to think of the name of the festival, which need to be sustained in the movie circles.
    All the best and see you next year again.
