    HIMPFF is a great film festival that truly sees the importance of the filmmakers having a good experience and impression of festivals. Its coordinators ensure a prompt response to any questions or comments we may have, and as a first-year filmmaker, I have had a pleasure working with the festival and see a future of continuing to foster this relationship.
