  • Due to COVID-19 it has been very difficult for film festivals of all to function properly. But because of the preparation that was put forth by these festivals to make it a enjoyable event for all film makers. I solute them for their hard work and efforts in what they and their staff did to prepare these festivals for us. I give them all 5 stars and would give them more for their efforts. Now we look for a new and better journey for film making in 2021. May GOD BLESS and be with us all.
