American Film Festival

With no entry fee, it seems well-deserving to declare American Film Festival’s “worth it.” A refreshingly un-American way celebrate American indie cinema, AFF gave its adventurous attendees the first chance to see 2017’s Battle of the Sexes, The Disaster Artist, The Florida Project, and mother! in Central Europe. The festival’s rough-cut screenings make room for small-to-midrange moviemakers as well, and other events leverage AFF’s partnerships with the Polish Film Institute and Wroclaw Film Commission to explore co-production possibilities for foreign moviemakers.

    Agree, remember to have your gold professionally graded and you should ensure that you organise the correct level of insurance to cover your investment.
