    This is a wonderful festival! It is run by people who truly care about the filmmakers and all of the contributing members of the production. The communication is outstanding, as they took time to write to me personally and answer any questions. And the event was well orchestrated resulting in a really fun night for everyone. This is a great festival run by compassionate and sensitive people who make everyone feel very valuable and welcomed. I highly recommend this festival.
