  • I was unable to attend, but it was fun to monitor the festival's facebook page and see all the satellite events they had going on and all the local spirit in covering them. Also, it was wonderful to have TWO films in the in the Dogs & Cats section ("Scrappy") and another in the Dance category ("Pooling").
