    I’m inclined to think that this festival has incredible tastes, based on the fact that we came away with some of the top awards. I can’t appreciate it enough. The only thing i might add is it would be really nice to have some custom laurels to go with the wins. But that’s a small flaw in an otherwise great experience.

  • The NYC Indie Festival was a pleasant vote of confidence, and the trophy award for the script for THE COLOR OF EVIL was also beautiful. Thank you so much.
