    This was my first time attending ICFF. I had heard strong praise about it from friends. This festival has only been around for five years, and is growing by leaps and bounds. Of course it has some growing pains with a few problems as a result of that. But on the whole, it was a wonderful experience, and one of the best Christian film festivals out there! They had a very nice venue for the festival and have plenty of volunteers who are extremely helpful. The networking opportunities were terrific! There were high quality guest speakers for the seminars, knowledgeable VIPs who actually networked with the filmmakers and didn't try to dodge people, huge crowds attending the festival, and more choices of things to do than one person could possibly manage to cover. They had a great pitch panel of creditable producers who listened and gave feedback to those who pitched. They had open auditions so that actors could show their stuff to real producers. There were seminars on lighting, sound, producing, directing, distribution, and on and on. This was a fantastic panoply of learning experiences for filmmakers. And, of course, there were the screenings of the nominated films that went on all day long throughout the entire festival. The biggest problem was technical, in that several times there was trouble getting films to play. Whether it was equipment and/or operator failure, faulty files the filmmakers had submitted, or some other issue, I don't know. But throughout the festival this problem seriously upset the scheduled screening times, causing attendees to have to choose between seminars and seeing the films they wanted to see at unpredictable times. I suggest the scheduling be adjusted to include more time for Q&A after films and seminars. Then any delays could be better absorbed. But this is part of the learning curve with a new festival and venue. I want to emphasize that I am SO GLAD I attended this event, even with the scheduling problems. I met so many wonderful people, made new friends, learned a great deal from others, and came home with encouragement flowing through my heart. this review would be ten pages long if I listed all the things various people said that were of value and helped me on my journey as an actress, a producer, and a writer. Thank you Marty and all your team for a fantastic experience!

    The International Christian Film Festival has one goal in mind - to promote the Christian film industry through Christ. Fantastically ran from the top to the bottom - from the location, vendors, guest industry speakers, workshops, premiering films, networking, and ceremony. An extremely enjoyable event!
