“WE RECEIVED OUR TROPHY FOR BEST DOCUMENTARY FROM BRASOV IFF
The Legacy of Menla won the Best Documentary award at Brasov International Film Festival last year in September.
We just received this beautiful looking trophy a few weeks ago so we went to our partner company FocusFox Studio to take a group picture. These wonderful people on the picture played a mayor part in our lives in the last three-four years since we were introduced to them thanks to Andras Toth and Denes Szekeres from Tivoli Films.”
