    Thank you PJIFF for naming "Sorry for Your Loss" Best Comedy of 2019! We are thrilled to now be part of the Poppy Jasper family! I definitely recommend this festival to future filmmakers. There is such a strong arts community that comes out in full force for this festival. While we had a slim attendance for our morning screening, we met so many wonderful locals who welcomed us with open arms — and wine ;) Festival Director Mattie Scariot is *AMAZING* and answers all your questions and makes you feel like you've always known her. And it's not every festival where you're greeted at an opening nite sit-down-dinner gala with a glass of champagne. Class act all the way. Looking forward to returning, as PJIFF enjoys continued success!

    I attended the 15th Annual Poppy Jasper Film Festival! It was a great network of filmmakers whom attended. The hospitality from the Brunches to the Lunches and the Gala were all just phenomenal! Thank you Mattie for putting on such a wonderful show! The only thing I wish was that they could have filled the seats more at the screenings! I'm sure in years to come there will be more community involvement in Morgan Hill!

    Unfortunately, I could not attend the festival. However, the communication was great and everything seemed very professional. I am so happy and honored to have been part of this festival with my short film "The Dance of Amal".
