  • I loved getting a Hybrid Genre award for "Best Feature Script" since my Sub-Arctic "Winter Bird" straddles several definitions.

    Thanks Johnatan for always being there to help, for your interest and kindness. Festival del tiempo is the festival that has treated me best: close and warm. In addition there are no festivals or there are few festivals whose main theme is time and history. Super interesting. Thank you for promoting my short film in Canada and Australia. What a pitty to live so far and not be able to attend the festival! Best wishes for Film festival of Time! Thanks Johnathan!

  • Eric de Gispert Koper

    e are very proud to have been part of this special festival. Although we could not attend, we felt very well treated and the communication was incredible. Festivals like this help to make visible present problems and to fight for the preservation of cultures. This, today, is very necessary.
    Thank you for the opportunity to project our documentary. We hope that this festival will continue for many years!
    Our best wishes!!

  • Tara Audibert

    The Film Festival of Time/Des Histories was great to be a part of, the had a lot of promotion for my film and a lot of communication. I wish I was closer to attend, but I feel it was a great experience to be a part of this festival even without my attendance.
