    VERY cool festival! Lots of films were selected, and all of a great quality. The closing night party was AWESOME, so many filmmakers showed up to attend. I would like to see more Q&A's held after each block so the audience and other filmmakers can have a chance to meet and speak to each other directly after the films.
    Very well run and curated, very nice theater and extremely polite and courteous staff. Everyone knew what was going on, and could answer any questions you had.

    Awesome festival!! The programmers and staff were really lovely to communicate with, and as a New Yorker I would say this festival is a must. AND WHAT AN AMAZING VENUE! I will definitely be applying here again!
