Overall Rating
  • First Show Films

    The festival is a well-conducted one for documentaries. Our short documentary received 'Special Jury Mention'. The detailed comments and reviews given by the jury members during the award ceremony were encouraging. Looking forward for the offline event. Even if our film is not there, we will make it a point to attend the festival next year.
