  • Thank you very much for the joy you gave us with the participation of our movie to your festival. I hope that we will have the chance to meet again in the future only physical this time and not through a digital-non-reality...). My wishes for all the best in the future.

    Thank you for accepting our application and the opportunity to participate in the festival and win. I'm sorry we didn't make a video of ourselves, but only now we find an email regarding this form of collaboration. We are honored that our film was noticed. We believe that we will manage to establish better cooperation in the future. Malgosia Szyszka Poland
