“A special award should be given to the organizer Linda McGuire and to all the Ambassadors (the team) at the Paleochora Lost World Film Festival. Accolades to the entire town of Paleochora in Crete for hosting a spectacular film festival in one of the most exceptionally beautiful places in the world.
The selection and caliber of films, all the directors present were top of the line and the hospitality and daily events surrounding the festival wonderful. Screenings at night in a graphic open air theater at town Hall among the warm and welcoming people of Paleochora.
During the day, more screenings at the club Pearl Cavo with expansive views of the Mediterranean Sea. Meet & Greet with Cretan wines and gourmet Greek food. Every evening networking with other directors at hip summer bars and clubs. I networked with more directors and made more friends in 5 days then I’ve made in the last 5 years.
From the first moment I was picked up by the kindest driver of the Psarakis taxi company to the accommodation at the amazing Aris Hotel—the films, food, friendships. This is a jewel of a festival — be careful because you may not want to ever leave. ”
