    This is the festival I will try to attend every year even without a film to screen. Gracie and the staff have biggest heart and all the organizers do everything they can to make filmmakers feel welcome and part of the celebration. This is one great place to premiere or screen with a fantastic and really engaged audience and I look forward to being there next year.

    TWIFF is a wonderful festival. It is superbly organized and run. Starting with Gracie Suzara (Co-Founder/Director), everybody was so professional as well as friendly, helpful and accommodating.
    This year (2019) they played not one but 2 of our short-films: UNMASKED and DNA. They gave the "Best Short Film" Award to DNA. We were delighted and honored, needless to say. We are very grateful, and wish TWIFF all the best in their coming years. We would love to have the opportunity to be back with new films.
