Some kind words by our students

This festival was one of (if not the) best for a student just getting into the world of film festivals - an amazing initiative run by students, for students, with clear communication throughout and a whole host of wonderful events on offer!

Amazing festival for world changing films! I felt very honoured to receive an Honorable Mention. It is so nice to see people from all around the world come together and share the same passion not only for film but also current important topics about the world.

What a fantastic festival! The organizers really went above and beyond on this one, and they offered an online space to network with other filmmakers. I enthusiastically recommend this to any student filmmaker!
