  • A fabulous festival! Peter and Jon have a special thing going in their dedication to getting films seen the way they should be seen. The Cinemark 18 & XD ranks amongst the best exhibition venues any filmmaker hopes for. Absolutely stunning picture and sound! Jon and Peter's genuine desire to helping films get exposure and a leg up is also apparent in everything they do. To boot, their closing ceremony was filled with palpable good energy and a real camaraderie between filmmakers. Highly recommend this festival!
