    The animators and everybody at ARG! Cartoon Animation were honored to have our short "Lear's Nonsense" screened at Blissfest333 this year. It's always a fantastic festival, the top event in Denver, as far as we're concerned. Michael and Ralph and everybody there do a super job. A++

    Blissfest333 is one of the best festival experiences we have had. Michael Bliss and Ralph Giordano put together a professional and welcoming festival. Seeing our film play on the big screen in a mostly-full theater at the Alamo Drafthouse was the highlight of our summer. The audience was immersed in the films because of the setting. The Q&A panel at the end of the day was also the best I've been a part of. Ralph asked many thoughtful questions, and each filmmaker had a chance to talk about their process, experiences, and challenges. Our comedy was nominated in most of the big categories that often are associated with dramas. I appreciated that the judges at this festival thought outside of the box when it came to nominations. The awards ceremony was a couple weeks later, and was also a fun experience. The staff really goes all-out in making the festival a worthwhile experience for filmmakers and attendees.

    Michael and Bonnie Bliss continue to improve on this Denver film fest. Each year the quality of showmanship and submitted films increases.
    I was honored to have my film "Hitcher Volumes" shown at Blissfest, where it received an audience best director award. Congrats to the cast and crew and thank you Blissfest.
