ImoIFF provided a platform for diverse voices and perspectives from around the globe. I appreciated the opportunity to engage with films that shed light on important social issues and cultural narratives. The organizers deserve commendation for their commitment to showcasing emerging talent alongside established filmmakers. However, I found the scheduling of screenings to be a bit hectic at times, making it challenging to catch all the films I wanted to see. Nonetheless, it was a worthwhile experience that left a lasting impression.
