    I loved the atmosphere with all the people and could network very well.. It was well organized and an amazing experience for a young filmmaker like me.

    Driftless was perhaps the most beautiful location you can imagine to show a film in. Great communication with Eve, and great spirit of loving films. Audiences were a bit small, but 100% of the audience was very involved and excited about our film Church of Felons - Even talking in the lobby for another hour after the screening. Will submit again, and I recommend you do too!
