Dear Participants of Wildlife Vaasa Festival 2012,
Greetings from Vaasa! Finally, after a successful press conference yesterday, we have now published the results of our festival selection, which include the finalists in every award category of both the international and the educational competition, together with our special award nominations.
All lists all included into the zip file attached to this message but you can check them also on our website news link: http://wildlife.vaasa.fi/index.php/en/news
Please note that all films included in those lists will be screened during our festival. Therefore, in order to achieve best possible screening quality we recommend that you send us a DVD-PAL screening copy or a blue-ray version of your film if you got one. In other case your film will be screened using the preview DVD you've already sent us.
So, what's next? You will soon get our festival (day by day program) and the information package how to reach us here during our festival incl. hotel offers and of course we can discuss how we can help you in order to obtain some funding for your trip here through your embassies or other funding institutes in your country. Meanwhile, we will build up the big program of our screenings and our printed publications.
Congratulations and we'll keep in touch
