" It was really great, people are very open. an innovative festival based on mutual aid between the different festival participants. I have taken a lots of contact, everybody share it. I think this is the first time that I have witnessed such a warm welcome before a festival which is already promising to be very convivial. A meeting hosted by Cheryle Renee Moses, this woman is fantastic. No stress, everything flows at its own pace, she gave us a round table where everyone introduced themselves, a meeting which included nearly a hundred people. I can tell you in advance that this is one of my best experiences. I can not wait to be there ! And by the way I invite everyone to participate in the next edition of the Urban Mediamaker Film Festival !
