  • It's so brilliant Sandpoint was able to take place "in real" this year and not online only, like most festivals are forced to these past months! Films are made to be seen on big screens... It was a treat to communicate with Candice. I hope I'll be able to attend this festival someday!

    Hello Charles,
    We did our best to keep our selection of fine indy films on the big screen, even if it was under the stars! The people who attended certainly appreciated the quality of the films. Thanks very much for submitting your film SO LONG PARIS. The characters were well cast. Lucy Pouchoulin is a natural and certainly has a big future ahead of her in film. Your work is a perfect example of excellence in filmmaking. Loved it. Thanks again. With peace & blessings,

  • Janice is a lovely host and Sandpoint is an Amazing destination. This is a fun event.
