    This Festival is a wonderful way for young filmmakers to have a platform for their creative endeavours. I feel so lucky to have had the opportunity to show 2 of my films this year. Can't wait for NEXT YEAR!

    Awesome festival. Unfortunately I could not attend, but the staff seemed very on top of things and communicated with the entries through multiple emails.
