    I really appreciate the people who put this festival together. Their mission is true to artistry. I was sick throughout the fest so I didn't have the strength to take advantage at all the great panels, but I'll look forward to it again next year. The only thing I'd like to see done differently is the films should not be scheduled to compete on different screens. I wanted to see them all but couldn't because of the format.
