  • I can't say enough about this festival, the people who are behind it and the city of Greenville. All perfect! This is a fantastic venue and a fun event. Our film looked amazing on the screen and I enjoyed the Q & A and the quality of other films in the festival. What a fun time. We will definitely be back!

    You people really are with it. Organized, professional, and interesting. A really grand experience, aided, I'm sure, by the wonderful atmosphere of the new Children's Theatre venue.. Made me feel like a real movie maker. Of course, it helped that you awarded me "Best Comedy". Thank you, thank you. Carl Clark
