    The Festival needs a lot of work to do. Honestly. Their Website was a bit confusing when browsing to find the selected films and information, and the schedule was very poorly done with little details on the works selected. Promotion was non-existent on social media and the overall organization was not up to par. It's their first year, so we hope that they can address all of the issues for the 2nd year if so.

    Unfortunatly I couldn't attend the Festival this year, as I am currently based in Europe, but I had an overall excellent impression. The director and staff were always very kind and helpful. Everything they did and said clearly showed great organization and a sincere passion for the art of cinematography.
