    This is a very intimate, fun venue. The projection and sound were remarkably crisp and the festival coordinators were extremely hospitable. I enjoyed the size of the fest and felt like I had a chance to talk with everyone in the audience afterward. Getting immediate feedback about my film was really nice!

    What a lovely little festival! My short doc "Mr. Joe lives alone" screened in a block of Louisiana shorts. I was blown away by the quality of the films. One made me cry, a few took my breath away. The packed audience was totally engaged and asked some very good questions in the Q&A. This is what cinema is about! I didn't expect that there would be much networking as it's a small festival, but I was wrong. I ended up networking with loads of Louisiana filmmakers. We shared a lot of info, exchanged contacts, and just generally had a great time drinking wine and watching cinema. Well done to the organizers! It was lovely!

    I've had two short films screen at this festival. The festival staff are awesome! My favorite thing about this festival is it takes great pride in student work. Honoring and encouraging future filmmakers is very important. Thank you!
