    Taglia Corti was awesome! The organizers were super cool and helpful, and everything went off without a hitch. I loved how they only showed one feature and two short each night. It meant that your film didn't get lost in the shuffle, and the lineup was really diverse and interesting. I felt like my work was really appreciated, and I can't wait to come back next year!
