    Thank you to AJay and the whole team for a wonderful New York 2023 Festival. Our series #VANLIFE (EMOTIONAL) won best comedy and were absolutely thrilled and heartened by the response from the festival and audience. We so appreciate all the work and passion put into the festival - Jasper Marlow and Chris Squadrito.

    Stareable Fest is a well-run festival with great communication, even for those who cannot attend in person. It's apparent how hard its organizers work for the creators of their selected programs. Thank you!
