    I appreciate that the Film Collective programs films outside the mainstream. They provided an outlet for my work to be seen and I can’t thank them enough for taking risks on storytellers.

    I am thrilled to have been selected to screen Finding Elijah. From the first impression on FilmFreeway to the actual event, I was grateful for the professionalism and courtesy shown by The Film Collective team. Super-duper happy to have won Best Work for my film. Thank you so much for the acknowledgement.
