    This is a great film festival and I truly believe will continue to grow. To be honest I was very inspired by the crew that runs this festival. They are genuine and hard working. They care about the filmmakers and you get an authentic sense of filmmaking since they have produced many films themselves. I actually enjoyed the intimacy that came in the workshops. Judith had lined up some incredible networking opportunities with a national a distributor that now my film is being considered Lord willing. The venue for next year, in 2019 is a perfect location and I know will help make attendees enjoy it even more. The hospitality is top notch. I was extremely honored to receive an award for our film. Thank you to all the team at Inspired FF Festival.

    Although we weren't able to attend in-person, we had great communication before and after the festival. Filmmaker friends and family that were able to attend really enjoyed it. It's a great festival that seems to be growing.

    I was so honored to be among the extraordinary women nominated for best female director. Although I was not able to attend the festival this year, the communication by the festival coordinators was timely and professional. I never felt left out. Thank you all and I hope to see you next year!
