    It was such a pleasure getting to show my film to this audience! Because the audience is so small it creates an intimate exchange between filmmakers and film watchers. To be able to interact with the audience, albeit from a video call, and to communicate with the enthusiastic hosts, was an absolute joy! I definitely want to work with them again next time I make a film!
