    My co-director and I, along with our actors, had a really great time at the festival. The venue was very nice, clean and comfortable. It wasn't a huge theater but it didn't need to be, it was a nice intimate screening, still with a good sized turnout. The organizers were very friendly and the quality of the projection was excellent. I'm planning to submit again for next year!

    A great festival and a thrill to have our film 'Yours Accidentally' be a part of it. We truly appreciate having had the opportunity to screen in Atlanta and wish you every continued success as a festival in the future.
