    The Film Festival was an enjoyable experience. Everything went like clockwork. The different nominations were good choices. The speakers were an excellent pick. The food was delicious. I loved all the prayers and scriptures throughout. I'm glad I was part of it.

    My deep gratitude to Mr. Tim Shields, Steven Lewis, and the entire staff at Content19 for acknowledging two of my original full-length screenplays, "Arizona Sunrise," and "The Apostle," as two of your top-6 finalists. Very much appreciated. My apology for not being able to attend due to urgent family health matters. Your communication throughout all of this was outstanding. Please know I feel very badly about being unable to attend. Blessings.
