    Overall a fairly nice festival. Very low turnout compared to the previous year. The venues for screening were very poor quality for initial screenings, but the screening venue for the awards ceremony was very nice. Competition was tough this year from foreign counties such as France and Iran, these films won most of the categories. Revolution is still very much worth a film submission, but there is room for improvement. Most collegiate level films do not stand much of a chance for nomination.
