Today marks the first birthday of English SFN. In the last year, as an independent and non-governmental organization, we tried our best to gather and publish the latest news on documentary and short films from all over the world - from Asia to North America, Europe to Africa, and Australia to Latin America. No doubt, we missed many events, because the world of documentaries and short films has become so large and our staff only includes a handful of enthusiasts. The only thing that kept us going is our huge interest that goes beyond the geographical boundaries and links us to people all over the world.
