    Unfortunately I didn't have the opportunity to visit the festival but I followed the event through social media and it looked like a very nice event and it gave my film The Bus Trip a lot of exposure via social media.

    It was very exciting to visit First Step Film Fest in Tirana - although there were not many international filmmakers, I found it very refreshing to discover this part of the Balkans which I probably wouldn't do any time soon. Festival was held in the most original open-air venue in front of gallery in so called "Cloud" - a structure built by a Japanese architect. It was an amazing screening venue - one of the best one I experienced in my life!
    The festival team was very friendly and helpful. I recommend everyone to visit this small but very friendly student film festival!
