    This was the first year of the Indie Street Film Festival and it's off to an amazing start! The programmers/staff are sincere, helpful, kind, and love movies. I look forward to watching this festival continue to grow.

    I wasn't able to attend but their communication and promotion of the festival and individual films was stellar. They are really organized and I will indeed submit a film to them again!

    These guys threw an incredible event. Fabulous programming, fabulous speakers, fabulous parties. The only way it could have been better is if more people knew about it and made the trip to Red Bank from the city... But I imagine that's the case with every first-year festival. As they build it, the audience will come!

    In its inaugural year, Indie Street proved that it has the staff, organization and venue to build a big, tentpole festival with quality programming. I would highly recommend it.

    It was a great experience attending this festival, the staff was super friendly and dedicated all the time. The Official Selection was amazing: quality over quantity. Because it is a new festival it should be more publicized so more people can be able to attend and enjoy films and events during the festival.
