    Especially since I couldn't be there for the festival, I really liked that the festival took the time to create an audience feedback video for the audience awards. Thank you!

    This is such a fantastic, up-and-coming festival. The organizers are committed to giving female filmmakers a terrific platform. They were easy to get in touch with and very supportive. The event was extremely well-organized and an absolute delight. We were honored our web-series was a part of this festival and highly recommend it.
