    Super happy that Crab Trap won Best Short at this year's festival (2017) and look forward to returning in the future. Great venue for a festival, supported by many local folks just wanting to watch good films. Greenville, SC is a great town with tons of great food, activities and nice people. And I love the heavy solid glass winners trophy. Highly recommend submitting and if selected attending. You'll meet some great local filmmakers and film fans. You'll also get hang out in one of America's top growing cities. So submit, attend and tell fellow filmmakers about Reedy Reels Film Festival.
