Overall Rating

    I had an amazing time at the Pennsylvania College Student Film and Video Festival. Leah Peterson, the festival director, was so sweet and very well organized. It was truly an honor to be included in a festival with so many other inspiring/boundary-breaking films. Additionally, the venue, AMC 11, was a great place to have a festival. Overall, I had an awesome time, and I would highly recommend that you make the trip to Williamsport if your film is selected.
