    This festival is GREAT. The location was an old elementary school that had the gym converted for screening and a fun bar/restaurant in the hallway. The host and director of the festival was incredibly warm and receptive to everyone that came through the door. I highly encourage anyone in the Colorado Springs area and beyond to submit and/or attend this fest!
