Response from festival:
Thank you, Caren. Our ‘Mission’ expresses the Idea of serving as medium for the Presentation of Work by ‘Independent, Outsider’
Artists/Visual Storytellers...It’s through that Ideal we meet, become acquainted with, Individuals, who’ve created Quality Projects which deserve to be Screened. They serve as Indicators of ‘A Way towards Understanding.’ Your Participation contributed to the ‘Strangely Beautiful...Beautifully Strange’ Vibration of Festival #9.....
