    Best Latinx film festival I've ever been to. Incredible care and attention to all filmmakers. Very informative meetings, discussions, panels, and talkbacks. NALIP is the organization to be with if you're a Latinx filmmaker. I say that from the heart and not plugging as I am not yet a member, but highly considering it after this festival. A+
