    My total gratitude to the VW BUS SHORT FILM Festival. Thank you very much for selecting my work ("Monsters") in the FINALISTS round.
    Without a doubt, it is an honor to be part of this new edition of the Festival.
    I applaud the fact that they have been able to carry out the screening of shorts, despite this serious situation of the pandemic.
