    Mia did a wonderful job at marketing the screening of our film. She was also incredibly communicative throughout the entirety of the process. We had a solid group of attendees and a very interactive Q & A. It was a really wonderful experience overall!

  • This is an outstanding film festival which hosts multiple screenings throughout the year. The organizers are friendly, knowledgeable, and clearly passionate about film. Great atmosphere and environment that's very welcoming to indie filmmakers. I was honored to be a part of this, and will definitely be submitting and attending again and again!
