    I want to say a big thank you to David and the team at the Dublin Sci-fi Festival 2018 for putting on such a great event showcasing both home grown and international talent. The quality of the films on show where very high and the eclectic mix on offer had something for everyone and kept you on your toes! This festival is only in its second year and already it is growing quickly. I couldn't recommend this event enough I had a blast and met a lot of interesting people. If you are a sci -fi nut make sure you make it down to the Dublin Sci-fi festival in 2019 and be prepared to enter another dimension! Tristram Giff

    The organizers are very friendly, and even without being able to attend in person I was able to understand that something was happening there (unlike many other FilmFreeway's festivals where my film was selected).
