    The Atlanta Comedy Film Festival was a fantastic experience! Not only were Caroline King and Mikel Fair processional but I could tell right away they were very passionate about helping film makers and screenwriters understand how this amazing film festival works. The films were hilarious and beautifully made. The Atlanta Comedy Film Festival is the Superbowl for the creative genius who loves the art of laughter!! I very much recommend this festival!!

    ACFF is a great example of a filmmaker's festival. The film quality was really great, and the networking opportunities were especially strong for regional filmmakers. It was such a pleasure to see our film screened with other like-minded films. Caroline and Mikel are so passionate about empowering comedy filmmakers, and it is a real pleasure to see their love for the genre, which is clearly evidenced in the execution of this festival.
