    A superb festival that treated our clients' films brilliantly and with the due care and attention that most festivals could learn from! Great correspondence, and it was a joy to hear both of our clients pick up so many nominations. A must-submit festival for any comedy filmmakers out there.

    Really enjoyed traveling up to Portland and seeing all the great sights in the area. Really cool festival in a neat venue. Loved the sellout crowd watching my short movie. Great communication. Nothing but positive to say. Great job.
