    From the submission process to the awards night, they are in constant communication. This is a group of film professionals who really know what they are doing. I can't recommend this festival enough. Thank you CENFLO for letting me and my team be a part of the magic!

  • Communication was informative and responsive. The facility felt like home (I spend a bunch of time in movie theaters). Networking opportunities abounded — excellent programming blocks. Jennifer and her staff were friendly, attentive, and showed a passion for their work.
