    Lots of fun and everyone was really nice. The networking event before the actual screenings was a lot of fun. I hope they keep doing that.

    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.
