We value risk takers that tested their filmmaking abilitties with no safety net. We cherish the efforts of those who dare to state their creative claim with both instinct and self exposure. The strength of an idea. That's what it's all about. We welcome all films produced with few means and where voluntarism self sacrifice was turned in to a strong creative cinematic catalyst. We have a soft spot for under-appreciated gems and we pledge to find honest, strong and mature work wherever it may be.
