The 10 days of the festival is complete madness with way too much crowd, parties, screenings, actors, producers, talent hiring agencies roaming all around.

The hotel fares or water taxis surge charges their rides for the smallest distance.

You have to be there to at least once in your lifetime to experience such beautiful chaos.
