    The entire experience left me cold, felt like a neglected child. No one reached out to me to see where I was, whether I was coming or not. How could they accommodate me if I needed anything. Nothing. Thank God I am already based in NYC. I was told to come and pick up my pass that would allow me to take part in the events. When I got to where I was asked to come, I was told the lady with the passes had not yet arrived. I waited 45 minutes and left without the pass. While I was there, I asked, when my film screened, if the organizers would be needing me to stay for Q&A. I was told they had discussed something like that during some meeting but would get back to me with definites. Nobody got back to me. When I did show up for my film, I was asked by the cashier which film I had come to see so I could properly be charged. When I responded I was the filmmaker, she appeared surprised. In the audience were about three folks. Added to them were five others who were my students and personal friends whom I had invited to come support me. After my film showed, I was suddenly introduced for a Q&A. The whole thing felt like a ghost festival.
