The NICE International Film Festival was one of the best film festivals that I have ever participated in as a director and producer. Every aspect of the festival was managed with excellence, from the communications with the festival director and staff, to the beautiful festival magazine, to the quality of films that I had the pleasure of watching, to the awards ceremony.

Carl, Adam, Kaoru, and the rest of the organizers that I did not get a chance to meet that night have been organizing something special. Every single one of the film makers we met were top notch and respectful, and were all carefully selected by this wonderful committee. The festival itself is massive, hosting countries from all over the world and giving each other pleasure of mingling and celebrating their great achievements in the film industry. It's no wonder this festival has been around as long as it has, because this remains a one stop shop for film makers to further their career in as safe, and friendly a way as possible.

If there was one thing we especially loved about this festival, it's how involved everyone was with each others work. Us film makers were chatting until the ends of each night about our greatest passions, and especially the awards night will be one of the most unforgettable evenings of our lives.

We look forward to applying to all the future Nice festivals to come, and further than that, to stay a part of this incredible Film Festival International community.
