    The first year of any film festival is only an indication of how the festival will grow and as hard as Shane and his crew worked, I have no doubt it’s going to be a big, fun, gory horror show for many years to come.
    The convention was epic and the facility was luxurious. We met wonderful people to collaborate with but as the festival grows that will gain exponentially.
    I loved the films they chose and we were so honored to take away Best Horror Short for Pete & Re-Pete. Don’t miss this one as they expand and grow, and don’t miss getting some terrific gumbo while you are in town.
