The variety of films on display was impressive, offering a diverse range of cinematic experiences. The international films were especially intriguing, and "Innocence Lost" (Swedish) in particular was a gripping thriller. An overall fantastic film festival.

I was thrilled to see our very own "Echoes of Euphoria" on the big screen. It beautifully portrayed our culture and traditions. Alongside that, the international films showcased were equally captivating, making it an enriching and unforgettable cinematic experience. Kudos to the filmmakers!
