    Excellent Film Festival. The communication is outstanding and they do make you feel like at home. The venues are mostly professional theaters. Great places to stay is you go to the festival. And most of all EVERYTHING IS NEARBY (venues, hotels, shopping, food).

  • I loved being a part of it, being nominated for best documentary. The gala was fun and the food was amazing. The ladies announcing the awards were so funny. I wish all the films being shown were in one venue so we could meet more folks. We had to travel from Orlando each night so hard to see them all when they were in different places. Thank you for recognizing our hard work sharing about how my husband and others were killed in the hospitals. Making A Killing - Patty Myers
