  • A wonderful festival!
    I am very grateful for the opportunity to show my work "Destructive sleep apnea" on the big screen.
    An extraordinary team and approach to organization.
    It is worth noting separately the motivation and perseverance of the team, which continues to take such important measures in the extremely difficult conditions of a full-scale war.
    I really hope we can cross paths again in the future!

  • A great festival organized by a great team. I was glad to take part in it with my film and to see the works of other directors. I liked the cozy Lviv atmosphere and pleasant conversations with the audience and directors. Thanks to the entire team for keeping the festival going even during the war.
