    Really enjoyed the selection, audience, and meeting the filmmakers; insightful fireside chat with David Roach, founder of Oakland Int'l Film Fest. Hope AfroComicCon becomes a staple of the Bay Area film community. Johwell and team have done a wonderful job. I look forward to next year's event!

    What a great festival! My short won the top prize and I couldn't be more proud to screen it in my hometown! The Q&A afterwards was great too! Big shout out to the whole staff and especially Johwell for holding it down! See you next year!

    This was a great Festival and ran smoothly. My short was selected and shown and received great feedback. I arrived with my family and friends and we had a great time. I did lots of networking as well as meet some good people. I will definitely be showing up to this Festival next year.
