hello guys, I moved our discussion threads to the MAIN forum. This way it'd be easier for everybody to join in, specially if they're not Pyr Group's members. I must ask Oktopus to PLEASE post his film again in the new Punto y Raya Festival forum... sorry about that.
Here's a shortcut.
The discussion threads are exactly the same, so feel free to join in or add new threads.

Ciao Balo, welcome to the group :) hello everybody. i'm not sure if you know how to follow up our forum discussions in the Village. (a shortcut here). Actually, we'd appreciate you could help us create new threads posting more dot·line material, suggestions for a new retrospective section, possible new venues for the tour, whatever! If you uploaded your film submitted to Punto y Raya to Youtube (or Google video...) and we haven't included it in our official website or in the forum, please, send me the link when you have the chance (ERRORvideo, links to your films will soon be included in the official web page and have been already included here, thanks!) Hugs.
