We would like to say thank you to all the filmmakers that have submitted they’re films…, selected and not selected. One day before the festival started the Cineworld Cinema in Dublin have closed down so it looks like we made the best decision to have the festival online and FesthomeTv was the best choice for us. 162 films was a lot of work but we just wanted to keep up with your expectations and the standard of your films, because what makes a good festival? Yes…good films. We just hope for better times next year, and please everyone stay safe.
