  • It was incredible to attend and present a film at the Brown Media Group Film Festival. With wonderfully engaged, open-eyed & open-minded attendees, lots of food & drink, & smart, emotionally sensitive programming, this festival was one of the best I've attended & had the honor to bring a film to. Looking forward to many more years!

  • It was an honor to be a part of the Brown Media Group Film Festival with Doug Liman, the director/producer of Bourne Identity, Mr. And Mrs. Smith, Edge of Tomorrow and many other movies we love and a 4-time Emmy winner Frank Lesser as our key note speakers. The festival showcased six wonderful short films and my short movie Pandora‚Äôs Box was amongst them. What an amazing, inspiring and connecting night.
