  • What a wonderful event! Held just a few blocks away (I think) from one of the most beloved and famous locations in L.A. I'm talking about Beverly Hills, 90210! Don't we all love T.V.?

    Thank you so much International Brightlight Film Festival for selecting our film Love Without a Casket (Amor sin féretro).
