  • Good festival. This year it was not a competitive festival due to the pandemic and no awards were annouced.

    I'm so very proud that a Film Festival on this level exist in the city I was born in. The Montgomery Film Festival “brings it” every year. Thank you so very much for including “Once Upon a Time in Montgomery” in this years lineup. Anton, phenomenal job!
