    It was such a pleasure to be part of this festival. It was the first film festival I've ever screened a project at and it was a real honor to be involved.

    Would definitely submit again.

    My film Jimmy the Limo Driver was featured at the this absolutely terrific festival this year and won best comedy short. Now, this is super awesome and I'm ablsolutley humbled and honored for this to be the case. But what's so great about this festival is not just it's awards, but the opportunity it provides for young filmmakers, giving my team and I the chance to make a piece with the city of shoreline is the coolest thing they could possibly do and for that I love this festival so much. Thanks for the great festival, the amazing opportunities, and for helping the future generation of the filmmaking industry! :)
