    I don't really leave reviews very often so forgive me for my grading. Festival is pretty good! They added a screening, and the director was very communicative after selection. I'm unable to leave a score for networking since this was not able to attend.

    My only real issue I had was the initial dates. Since they were unable to change the times, the festival showed the festival date in February when it was really in May. They also were unable to announce the screenings until much later and by then, I was unable to attend the screening as a Nor-Cal resident.

    I would recommend this festival if you a first time filmmaker.

    Though I really wish I could have attended this festival, the EIFF exceeded my expectations. They provide so much information, that you still feel you're a part of the festivities. I will definitely submit in the future again. Thank you. Finalist "Confessions of a College Hustler."
