    I loved my San Antonio Qfest experience. The screening venue was outstanding and the folks that I met were topnotch. If you get accepted to this festival, GO.

    The San Antonio Q Fest was a great festival. As my film also participated in the Q Fest last year, I was able to see a good thing get even better. Apparently word of the festival had spread. Competition was fierce as they were able to run full showings on two theaters. Possibly due to this, they took advantage of moving the festival to a new theater complex. The organizers did not hesitate to keep the entrants informed of all that was happening with the festival. Participating films were entertaining and provoking. My documentary "Wally" played on opening night to a receptive audience. Though the changes in the air did lead to some unexpected results, streamlining and improvement will only lead to an even better festival in the upcoming year.
