    We were unable to attend, but this festival is doing something important in promoting a healthy, and positive representation of several of Latino Art & Film.

    I was invited to show my feature documentary at Tulipanes in 2017 for their 17th annual art and film festival. My experience was terrific. This is definitely more of a "community" type festival (rather than a "filmy" type festival) but the Q&A session after the film was seriously one of the best I've ever had. Great hospitality and communication as well!

    The people were wonderful and we were treated well, had some great conversations, and learned a lot about the area's culture and history. But projection quality and publicity/Attendance are still areas where the festival can grow in capacity.
