    I was truly an honor to have my music video featured in this festival. The director of my video spoke on the panel and I had the privilege of sitting back and listening and learning from all the different panelists. Lesley really pulled together a team of experienced and knowledgeable panelists.

    The event was quite well organized. Loved the way interactions were done. Each director was given a chance to share their knowledge and experience. It was quite valuable.
