    Great experience and very well organized. Mia communicated with us every step of the way. Grateful to Queen City Cinephiles for screening Last Disintegrated School in Charlotte. Love the use of technology to bring the audience closer to the filmmakers who are unable to travel to Charlotte, NC. Audience was excellent and the feedback was incredible.
