The 2016 festival saw a screening of 40 films, shortlisted from 3400 submissions.
70 countries participated and the movies were screened in various locations (Silverbird cinemas, Jamestown, Blackstar Square etc.) We look forward to an even more exciting event in 2017 under the theme – for the young at heart.
