This is a big festival with market and lots of industry attention and some great seminars and workshops. However, filmmakers were charged €50 per class and even charged to watch other films. There was also no specific invited to any social events or clear schedule for parties. It was all word of mouth and felt very exclusive. It may just have been bad luck but my experience was quite a cold one. It seemed more interested in smashing box office records rather than celebrating film and its makers. James Around 5 years ago
