What an experience being in Houston and given a Gold Remi Award.

In addition to watching films from all over the world, I met great peoploe with my very same dreams.
I was literally mesmerized by the beauty of 3 great movies:

-OFFENSIVE by Jon Ford (UK)
-INNER CITY by Ilgar Safat (AZ)
-THE SUNFISH by Soren Balle (DK)

I wish all good film-makers and screenplay writers - since with no good screenplays there are no good films - the best luck, including me! 8)
