  • I was honored and excited that my film ReUp was accepted to the festival. However, It didn't receive any promotion or any feedback or news if it was screened.
    I promoted the screening for streaming but it was non-existent and still not updated. It was a bit of a letdown when folks signed up and could not view my film.

    I really appreciate Urban screening my short film. Unfortunately I could not attend but a lot of people reviewed and seemed to like it. From what I could see the party was buzzing even during COVID times. Congrats!
