Also, this is an Independent Festival self-sustained at this first year, so (like most of the Festivals), can't pay travels and accommodations for Filmmakers coming from all over the World.
However, on the Website there is a list of suggested places to stay and places to eat, that accepted to offer discounts for the Festival attendees.
