    Although this year’s festival was online, I appreciated the great communication and professionalism of the organizers. And what a huge blessing to receive an award for my script ‘Because of Charlie’! Hope this event can be in person next year!

    In the dozens and dozens of festivals that I have entered and been selected, I have never had a festival charge the filmmakers to see their films, to go on the red carpet and to go to the award ceremony.
    I really think you should check this Film Festival out. It seems like it's about Jose Nieves making money, rather than celebrating filmmakers and giving them an opportunity to share their work.

    Response from festival:

    I'm sorry you feel that way. I don't know what dozens of film festivals you have attended but film festivals always charge tickets to attend their festivals, ceremonies and seminars. We have yet to charge anyone to attend our festivals because we haven't had one in person yet because of covid.
    But God willing we will have one next year. If you are not happy with our festival then you can continue attending the dozens of the "so called" festivals you attended for free.
