  • Honestly, it was a very rewarding experience. Only issues I had were with keeping to time on the part of the organizers and also only 6 awards were given out from 14 categories and nothing has yet been said about the remaining eight categories!

    Although I was happy to have my film selected, I have no idea when it was presented. No anger here, just that there is room for improvement. A detailed films schedule could be useful, not only the events that are presented as part of the festival.
