    This was such an amazing festival, as it’s entirely teen-focused, and such a great opportunity to network with fellow teen filmmakers. The festival was well organized and had great attendance. Thank you for selecting “Ivy” to screen, I really hope to be back next year!

    We were honoured to be included in the festival- it was well organized and the actors in the film had a lot of fun being able to attend a local screening with their families. It was also great that the festival uses film students as the judges. Such a great experience:
