    We had a lovely time at Vision Fest this year in spite of the unseasonably cold weather. Wonderful venue and some really cool people. Filmmakers Alliance & Vision Fest have been around supporting filmmakers for a very long time. Great to be a lifetime member of FA. And so happy to screen our film in this community. It was platformed really well and given a lot of love. Grateful.
