It means so much to me and the production team of Always for the recognition. We made this short film for so many personal reasons so the fact that we were able to screen and be selected at your incredible festival is such an achievement and a huge honour for us. The calibre of films was astounding at the Festival this year, to be among them is so wonderful.

The festival was so wonderful and it was an amazing experience for me. Watching other films, getting to know other film makers etc etc. And then winning… that meant so much to us. I am happy you recognised our film and this has propelled into confidence to send the film to a lot more festivals. I am excited about starting future projects. You have created a really special platform with this festival. Thank you.
