    The experience submitting our material to the festival and the communication with their staff was amazing. They invited the director of our video to a panel which was really fun to do. Overall, it was a very pleasant experience

    We felt very supported by Matt and the rest of the team at HAMA. It was such an honor to have our film represented in a festival that's run by artists and movie lovers. We also felt really grateful the festival team took the time to do a 30 min interview about our film and shared it on all of their platforms. We had a great experience!
