    I was thrilled to have Gimme Shelter Part Three picked to be represented in this film festival. I may not have won, but I feel my story is competitive with any. One of the film festivals to look for.

    We were proud to be part of the festival. I wanted to attend, but communication was a bit sketchy so it was difficult to organise. Unfortunately I ended up not being able to be present. However the team did make an effort on social media to keep us informed. As a new festival, we can only support them. It will get better every year.
