    I love this little festival. I've been two years in a row and they treat filmmakers like rock stars! I'll submit every year.

    This was my first film festival and was honored with having my doc selected. Margie and I had a great time. The theater was perfect with excellent acoustics and very comfortable. George and his crew did an awesome job. We will attend next year!

  • Looks,like a nice festival. It's our second time being selected here and we've failed, due to bad timing and money, to attend. That is something we hope to correct in the future.
