Happy New Year to all!
Updates are in progress. Part of the process is eliminating festivals that now have a fee, and if I miss one, please let me know. One of these festivals, Chester Animation Festival -is now charging a 5.00 fee, which is not exorbinant, but is a fee none the less, and the Krakow Film festival charges a fee for non-Polish films (10 Euros).
Stay tuned for more upcoming festival deadlines.
best of luck,
