    Tom and Robert put on a great fest. The Wild Project was a unique and wonderful venue and our guests really enjoyed the screening. Would recommend for NY based filmmakers looking for a supportive fest to showcase their short films!

    Had a lovely experience working with the New York No Limits team for the March Art of the Short screening. They were professional, responsive, and put together a great marketing campaign for the specific shorts. Love the entire mission behind the series.
