    A great new film festival in a great town. My doc- In The Name Of Comedy and our Sci-Fi short- Taken In The Night was well received. Looking forward to returning in years to come. Thank you Point Lookout Film Festival and CJ for everything.

    I wish I could give this more than 5 stars. Everything about this festival was a positive experience - from the amazing communication to the first class treatment.
    I want to specifically thank Chris and Steve for all their hard work, and to say I will absolutely be submitting my latest work to next year's event, and hope I'm lucky enough to be accepted!!!
