    Our project was selected and won 2nd place. We were very thankful for the opportunity to have our work streamed for a larger audience. I recommend submitting to this festival!

    I wasn't able to attend the festival, but so I'm incredible happy that this festival is bringing exposure to young filmmakers trying to get there start in the world, and I wasn't honored to have my film featured in this years festival :)
