    Про фестиваль, можу сказати, що проведений дуже на високому рівні, як для першого разу. Впенений, що на теренах України зв'явився конкуретний кінофестиваль для Одеського та Молодості. Підбір конкурсної програми цікавий та сильний. Окрема подяка волонтерам за допомогу пі час фестивалю. І великі вітання всім організаторам на чолі директора фестивалю Віктора Булиги за три дні кіно-щастя )))
