    This is one of my favorite festivals that really pushes the boundaries of an attendance experience. Alberto and Juame run it together and really curate an amazing slate of films and activities that invite you into their Spanish culture and introduce you to their home in Castille La Mancha, which is a beautiful part of the country. It is one of the few festivals I know that provides accommodations and transportation for filmmakers and they go above and beyond to make your stay enjoyable.
