    The communication was fantastic! We were so honored to be part of line up. They love film and honor the filmmakers. They make you feel like family. We look forward to submitting again and attending in the future.

    I have nothing but high praise for Festigious. Such wonderful, beautiful souls and with a deep understanding of what a filmmaker goes through and the art of storytelling. I plan to show more work and hope someday other film festivals can learn from their amazing shining examples.

    These folks were great! Big thank you to them, they even awarded our film with an award that we didn't submit for.
