  • The Inwood Film Festival was well organized and the vibe was super positive. As a filmmaker from Uptown NYC, I see this as an opportunity for many untold stories that can change the community and beyond. Really a well though out and planned festival.

    This is a wonderful local film festival. The theater is usually packed, the Q+A's are great and the volunteers are wonderful. I have been to a lot of festivals and this ranks high on the list!

    A wonderful event, very well organized. Each screening of the fest was sold out, a 150 seat theater. The films were great and nice to connect to the community.
