    Great party. Organizers went out of their way to throw a fantastic event. Lots of local radio & TV coverage/PR. Lots of sponsors, well-organized. Had a great setup at the club it was held at, indoor projection, outdoor backlit screen, entertainment between categories (rock band/magician etc...). Beautiful people roaming around in costume & held in one of the best cities in the country. Fun celebration of the art of filmmaking. Will definitely attend next year whether or not I have a film in the festival.
