    What a great opportunity to have our film be apart of LFSFF. We weren’t able to actually attend the screenings but heard through several social media outlets that the place was packed and the crowd came with the attitude of celebrating indie filmmaking rather than the attitude to critique it. That combination seemed to be the perfect atmosphere for our ultra-micro budget smartphone short film as we were honored to walk away with best international short. Great experience. Great people. Thanks for everything!
