    It was such a wonderful experience to be a part of the festival this year. Overall communication from the festival with information and updates were great. Timely responses were received from my inquiries. I was pleasantly surprised when I learned that my film "Gramps' Moving On" was selected as the Best Romance short. Due to my virtual online participation in the festival this year, my ability to network was limited. I hope to one day attend this well organized festival in-person.

  • We could not be happier to be included in this years festival. Our only regret was that our team couldn't attend in person this year because of scheduling conflict. Peter and the rest of the staff were so easy to communicate with and the way they kept us updated was top notch!
