We’ve started a new talk back segment where participating filmmakers get to interact virtually to discuss their work. Our festival is all about diversity, inclusion and showing films which display a wide variety of subject matters. It’s not so important that your film be perfect, does it have a message and make an impact? If so we invite you to submit your film today.
