  • It was pretty exciting to hear that my first attempt at screenwriting had received the Best Screenplay / First-Time Screenwriter! The discount made it a particularly good value too. I'm very pleased that my feature script ยซThe Llandudno Fileยป made it in this Festival. No doubt I'll enter this again - I was traveling in Slovakia last year but couldn't this year. Thanks again!

  • The generous discount offered by Koลกice International Monthly Film Festival made it possible for me to submit my "Derivative" project to their All Categories option. It never occurred to me that my animated short could win Best VFX, especially since it didnโ€™t use CGI (just a little imagination and a lot of math). Itโ€™s great to know that KIMFF values old-school visual effects โ€” from my entertaining daydreams to their entertained eyes!
