    Susy is the star, her dedication to the filmmakers and her passion for the festival is undeniable. I'm a first time filmmaker and to receive 3rd place and receiving my first ever filmmaking award is a very special moment for me... I will hopefully get the pleasure to attend your festival in the future and get to meet the star of the show...

    This festival is a great place to show your story. The festival team is awesome. It's one of the most important place to send films for mobile film makers. I really appreciate to IMFF San Diego, for their effort and their interest to my short documentary. A special thanks for Susan who runs the festival. She is amazing.
    Dont hesitate and just send your movie !
