    I wanted to thank Elizabeth English who runs this festival. She took the time to speak with me about my work and provided valuable feedback for improvements. That's very rare to get a one on one.

    So can’t get emails returned about what comes after being selected as a finalist, or why there were no winners for all categories. Can’t get IMBD to update the status on their page, I’m guessing because they posted the winners as an excel file on their website? Not sure what the value is here because they won’t return emails. Please note, there is no screening, the festival listing is online only so a bit misleading.
