    Thank you, Jim and Nick! 'Branching Out With The Invisible Man' is a marvelous short film!

  • A great team which managed to put together this festival during a pandemic. Great communication, clarity and information. Great variety of films, great selections, and in general it felt like an authentic celebration of genre and outsider cinema you won't find anywhere else. Highly recommended.
