I had a great time attending both BAF and Encounters Film Festival. Despite winning no awards, it was really great to be part of both festivals. There were so many amazing films to see. I did get a commended mention in the Encounters award ceremony which brightened my day!
Following this festival news - My graduation film has been accepted in ITFS (Internationales Trickfilm Festival Stuttgart). It also got through a couple of selection processes for the BAFTA awards, but to my disappointment, I didn't make it into the final 3 shortlisted films.
