    Jessica and the entire Southeast Regional Film Festival team were inspiring. In spite of losing one of their key members, the team was able to come together and run the festival this year. Though COVID forced it to be an online event, it was a great. Our film I RESIGN was also selected in the event and it was a proud moment for us. Thank you so much team. A film festival that is highly recommended..!
