Overall Rating
  • First of all a unique cinema, built 1913 or something. Truly classic. Additionally, Live at Heart is a festival with both film and music, so there's never a dull moment :) Perhaps a bit difficult for the film festival to compete with all the musical acts.

    I was so happy that Live at Heart selected my short documentary.
    Even though different circumstances because of Covid I felt very welcomed, a lot of nice movies and I was so happy to win an award!
    Thank you so much!
