    I had such a great time at NYSFF! Thank you so much to Cailin and everyone on her team! Their communication and planning of events was fantastic, they really built an entire week of great connection, conversation and films for everyone. It meant so much to be included and I look forward to attending again next year as either a filmmaker or supporting audience member. Thank you, Cailin!!
