    Bucknell Intercollegiate Film Festival was a truly unique and wonderful festival experience. I am so grateful for the work of the Bucknell Students, who not only watched 100's of films in order to program the festival, but also had to figure out how to transition the festival over to a virtual program due to COVID-19! I really appreciate the programer's commitment to the film community and creative expression during this unprecedentedly hard time.

    Great Festival. Bunch of troopers who were able to swiftly change from an in-person festival to a virtual festival over the course of 3 weeks due to Covid-19. Proud to have been a part of it.
