  • Films are screened at the august Cinéma Village on 12th St. NYC. Communication was good. Good networking. My film Another Mother's Son was scouted by Dumbo Film Festival and invited to submit there. It was accepted a few days later.

    Wonderful experience! Screening at the historic Cinema Village and great company. I only wish I had realized that there would be some seats left or I would've filled them. Otherwise, a great experience!
