    Had my film screened last year. The opening night party was really nice and inviting. Hakki clearly loves organizing this festival through his active participation through the screenings. The selection of films him and the curators put on are actually a solid choice and varied. The screenings happen all over town; mine was at UnionDocs and the place was packed with filmmakers and cinema lovers.

    It's definitely worth your time and money to screen here.
