    Fantastic festival in the heart of New York City. Highly recommend this if you have a film (or are a fan of) work in this genre.

    This is a fantastic festival. I really enjoyed getting an award for Best Visionary Film - very special to me. Really great venue and idea for a festival, for music and also for video. There should be more like this one!
