Overall Rating
  • Yuval Shrem

    This festival and the people who run it are a delight.
    The venue is excellent, with terrific quality of sound and picture.

    The festival is very supportive to independent filmmakers, and creates a sense of community.

    Lastly, Peter and Jon who run the festival, are some of the most modest and supportive people you'd find running a film featival anywhere. I feel truly lucky to know them.
