    I attended my first Film Fest for our film MANUFrACTURED in Florida fir The Saints snd Sinners Film Fest. The film makers and others that attended were personable and friendly and everyone enjoyed watched all the official selected shorts and feature films. Rick Danford had communicated so professionally and kept me up to date. I was very honored that our film won best Feature under the Sinners category. Thoroughly enjoyed this festival

    Thanks so much for recognizing our short film "JUVIE" as your best short film Saints, this year. This festival, held in conjunction with MegaCon, offers plenty of entertainment and activity and the communication/coordination with filmmakers is outstanding!

    It was so much fun to be selected for this Festival! The screening took place at MegaCon Orlando and it was quite the show before the films even started. The festival had a large room for the screening and it was well set up as a theatre. Everything was very organized and the films kept playing throughout the day. I enjoyed going and meeting other filmmakers and Rick Danford was awesome!
