  • NOX FILM FEST has been very good for me. NOX challenged me to make a 13-second film and - it was selected. So I submitted to other fests. More success! This little film has gone world-wide! I thank this wonderful International Horror and Fantasy Film Fest, and the challenges it gives to filmmakers !
