This festival is one of a kind. First of all, no online pre-judging, meaning that all the works entered are screened and pre-judged directly during the festival by the jury members. This is way more objective. Second, the jurors are only top professionals of our industry: no politics, just hard work, in a very friendly atmosphere. And last but not least, students from all over the world are invited to the last day of debate inside every jury: that’s real transparency, and it’s also very generous.”
