It's not like they can join another room and the point of the festival is to judge, most of the people there are not even enthusiasts but the toughest critics, merchants scooping talent, craftsmen and the film staff themselves. Hence the air of elitism but also high standards (at least back then) strange that some experienced directors don't realize that.
I keep reading bad stuff from the festival in recent years so i don't know what to say, i am seeing politics and ego appeasement have taken a hold on the most popular festivals. Berlin is a far-left stronghold with its liberal critics and standards, Venice is a Hollywood distribution hub enclave with its explicit award handouts between friends (Shape of Water and Roma, Al Pacino and James Franco winning honorary prizes for their "masterful contribution to the world of cinema in directing") and Cannes became a red carpet/fashion runway that made most of their nominees pay their own expenses to travel to the festival and the judges have no credentials to do such a duty.
It's a nip movie, so probably a translation for hikikomori that aged ironically.
Let's see if i can pull it out from somewhere
, it doesn't have seeders so it might take a while.
