    This was more than a film festival. From the screenings, to the marketplace meetings, it was a solid experience. We were able to meet industry professionals and talk shop. The invaluable insight given was much appreciated. I highly recommend this festival to all creators. Thank you, Ajay and Sarah!

    This was an amazing experience! Ajay and Sarah were incredibly helpful with coordinating the marketplace meetings. This is more than just a film festival, and I feel incredibly lucky that my film was selected and I was given the opportunity to network with such influential people in the industry.
