Yay, it is first ever film festival I have gotten into. The short documentary “For My Friends in Detention” I made last year is an official selection into the Global Impact Film Festival in Washington DC, United States.
I have sent it into a few more festivals and since the announcement I have had a suggestions of for local screenings — which is great.
GIFF is a few days of short drama and documentary films with workshops around social justice filmmaking. Wish I could be there… But cost and time :p
