    Poor communication.
    They charge you to attend a club to find out if you won an award.

    This is a wonderful festival! I felt very welcomed, and NYSFF made every effort to connect us all. The workshops and panels were also very informative.

    Thank you NYSFF for selecting us this year! We loved the historic venue and the talkback opportunity you allowed for after the screening. What a special experience!
