    I was absolutely blown away by, not only the outstanding communication and marketing options available for the participants provided by the festival team, but the sense of connection and networking possibilities with other teams and artists that FilmCon has created. Especially in these extraordinary times: it was an encouraging, open and welcoming experience. I am grateful for the reception my script was given, and look forward to returning in the future!
