    Serious kudos to Derek Quick and the Olympus Film Festival. This new festival was very progressive with communication. Received lots of info through the process. You can tell Olympus has a lot of enthusiasm for it's entries and the filmmakers. Not very many fests get a great venue like right off the bat like they did for the screenings as well. Am proud to be a part of their festival. Just watch them soar. Good people. I'd give them a Gold Medal.
