Marta Díaz de Lope, director of Hopelessly Devout

The fact is that my visit to the Edinburgh festival has been a very good experience, both because of the way I was treated in every respect by the organisers and because of the way the film was received. For me it was very rewarding to have the film shown outside Spain, and the subsequent colloquium was of particular interest. It’s very pleasing to hear the views of the audience, and even more so when the reception is so positive. So I only have words of thanks to the festival for including me and, above all, my beloved group; and to all the people who are part of the team that treated me so nicely and warmly, and who made me feel so relaxed throughout.

Good luck with the Festival, you are doing a great job and I hope I can come back soon, maybe with my next film.”
