What is the source or site you are trying to access? Did you download it from somewhere? Is there a link?  ???

The only thing I can think of is like a question about film festivals, like getting any awards or whatever... not that I'm familiar with any of that stuff, is just my only guess...

Propably. It looks like a machine translation from Romanian (it's from a Romanian website). I'm not sure, though.

I agree with Asteriktos. I think it's asking what film festivals has the film (or films by the individual) been selected for, what was the type of selection (i.e., 'featured presentation, alternate screening, etc) and any awards or distinctions won.

It is clear from the words used, if not their order.

Maybe it came easier to orthonorm, but I figured there were all sorts of festivals, but how many of them had a selection of some kind? That's why I asked about whether you were making a movie though, cause I wasn't sure if that was it or not.

You show film selections at film festivals.

I meant to ask for details on this, Cavaradossi mentioned it to me on Facebook.

trying to switch to romanian did not help, as the titles were still in english!
i think it means 'what festivals have this movie selection previously been shown at?'
