    It looks like a mess. Our film was selected, and then we were asked for a trailer. We sent it, didn't have any answer, we never received any answer of any kind. On the website, there is only a trailer for ONE film and nobody can tell which films are screened. So we don't know if our film "20 meters of love in Montmartre" has been showed at the festival. It's a total blackhole. Can you tell us ? If not, why not a refund ?

    Great festival and great opportunity for international artists to get their work presented in Venezuela! They helped promote my new Trump-related script "The Look of Hate" to a worldwide audience.
