    One of the best Festival's I've encountered. Even though communication was via Skype the Festival and it's director Banks was absolutely charming . The feedback was positive and engaging. ALL festivals should be like this!

    Dear Curator,

    Thank you for offering me my first opportunity.
    I enjoyed to share with the audiences. They are very lovely.
    I hope that the laurel of this event will bring me to another milestone!
    Love is to accept those who dislike you. Love helps you to comfort yourselves and people with the same experiences --- that is my final message. I hope that we will share love in this earth!!!!!

    The Life Screenings International Film Festival is fantastic! My film "A Family Recipe Cannot be Followed Written Down" was selected about a month ago, and me and my actress were invited to attend a Q&A via Skype. The crowd was incredibly engaging and we were impressed by the thoughtful questions that they asked us! Would recommend to anyone looking for quality engagement with their films.
