5th London Georgian Film Festival
"Georgian film is a completely unique phenomenon, vivid, philosophically inspiring, very wise, childlike. There is everything that can make me cry and I ought to say that it (my crying) is not an easy thing." - Federico Fellini
"There has never been a better time to watch films made in Georgia. In the past two years the country can boast having produced several award-winning films and has replaced Romania as the former Soviet Bloc country where the most exciting films in the world are currently being made."
- Kaleem Aftab in the Independent
