    Really cool festival! Very hospitable. They had a technical difficulty while showing the films but the organizers handled it extremely well! The networking was okay, not great but good. Wish they would give an earlier notice on acceptance but other than that an amazing festival and experience! Highly recommend

    My students had a wonderful experience at this event. They had the opportunity to network with other filmmakers and see their film on the big screen, which helps with reflection and evaluation.

    Pegasus was a wonderful festival where I was able to meet different young filmmakers while learning from local industry professionals. I would recommend this festival to any young filmmaker!

    This was the best run high school festival I've been to! It was short and sweet, and all the films were engaging.

    Made great friends, amazing opportunity to network, all while having fun at the same time! Pegasus felt like an experience rather than just a festival. Would happily do it again!
