    We were honored to be part of the TWIFF. It was a great experience and I met people who will be transformative in my career. The festival directors are helpful and enthusiastic. They made everyone feel welcome I enjoyed the audiences as well. Great job!

    Amazing film fest. Good food, nice people, interesting films. I wish there is more wine served, so I can easier go thru those long speeches at Awards :) Including mine. Just kidding. All was great.

    I did not attend the festival, but would have if the film acceptance process had been better. I paid my entry fee, was accepted, and I immediately acknowledged that I wanted my film included. After not hearing from them for a month, I wrote and asked what film format to send. They said I never acknowledged the acceptance and was not included in the festival. I told them the exact email address, day, and time, that I had written to acknowledge acceptance. They said to send a DVD and they would try to squeeze me in. I was never on the schedule and they never answered my inquiries as to whether my film played or not.
