Overall Rating

    It was an honor to have "Liquid Spine, Augusta" included in the Boston Dance Film Festival.

    The festival Director and on-site team were incredibly kind, responsive, and organized. The event itself was a wonderful way to connect with the greater Boston dance & film communities.
