Overall Rating
  • Excellent festival. Already looking forward to applying next year. Maura, Kristin, and the crew were on top of communication and really took care of the filmmakers in attendance. I was so excited that my work was featured along with other great films and programming. Great experience all around.

    A terrific new festival for the region. I was honored to be featured among a first class line up. Communication was clear, organized and extraordinarily welcoming. I regret that I was unable to attend, but I heard great things about the events.
