    It was such a pleasure being a part of the first Astoria film festival. The films were unique and impressive, staff was super helpful, Nina was amazing! The Venue for the festival and after party was also such a treat. I enjoyed learning about the Astoria film scene, sharing my work and engaging with so many other artists.
