    A festival of this topic is really a necessary one. Please keep working on generating this exquisite programming for the audiences.

    It was such an honour to have our film screened at two of the most respected cinemas in Oslo through the Oslo/Fusion festival. While the filmmakers' participation was limited during the events, the quality of the screenings was top-notch and the festival staff were very chill and hospitable. The selection of films was quite varied despite the festival having a specific theme (queer stories), and I quite enjoyed watching the shorts as well one of the features.

    This was a beautifully curated Festival with a wonderful selection of highly creative and original films! It has a lovely intimate vibe, the team is so friendly and hospitable and we had really great audience engagement for our Premiere. Plus I think they produced one of the nicest Catalogue booklets and Festival opening credits I have seen!

    From the very begining the communication with the festival was good.
    Unfortunatly I couldn't attend to the festival, and I didn't present my work to the audience as I would have loved it.
    I hope the film received a good welcome.
    I wish all my best to the festival team, and once again thank you for selecting my film, I'm very happy it has been screened in OSLO/FUSION
