    It's a wonderful festival, with great and very responsive organizers. We were honored to have won "Best Music Video" in 2019 for "Leading Me Straight". They mailed us a trophy medal that's actually made out of some combination of a rock from Mars and a very rare meteorite! We look forward to submit in the future, and highly recommend for you to do the same!

    Wonderful hospitality, communication, and passion for science + film. The venue was stunning (you won’t want to miss the Planetarium showings too!) and I look forward to applying again in the future.
