What’s your connection to Mississippi? (If you don’t have one, why did you apply to a Mississippi festival?)
No connection. When I started to learn about film festivales with a previous work (a music video called Touching The Sun), Crossroads was one of my highlights to submit. Since then I tried to be accepted on the Festival until now! Crossroads is very known Film Festival here in Venezuela.
