    This is an awesome film festival! It's IMDb accredited and the communication is excellent. When our film "Exploring Hope for Better Times" won for both "Inspirational" and “Best Director” in June, we were just thrilled, and the feedback that it was “original and well directed” really meant the world. Thank you, Festigious, we love you !!
