  • West Sound Film Festival is a must attend. We attended this year in the town of Bremerton, WA which is an amazing town. The film screened in a renovated Roxy Theatre with high quality projection and sound. The audience attending was so excited to watch all the films and there were plenty of opportunities to network and engage with viewers. Overall Amy and her team killed it and I will be submitting again in the future.
