    This festival was fun to be part of and, even during the time of covid, was able to hold in person events, which is extraordinarily valuable.

    I had a couple bumps, but the festival coordinator was there to help immediately every single time. The final product of the festival was fantastic. The festival coordination was great, even in this ever changing times. I met great filmmakers and I hope to be there again!
