  • What an amazing festival! 10/10. It's only their 2nd year and already they're well ahead of many other festivals that have been around for years! Weather you're a filmaker or film fan, you really need to add this to your calendars and not miss this festival!

    Well organized, extremely friendly and helpful. The town of Paul's Valley should really be proud of this festival and the organizers. Paul's Valley is such a beautiful small town.
