    Overall this is a wonderful event. The organizers are very responsive and do their very best for a great evening. The selection of films is very high and the filmmakers all come out to discuss their projects. Further, the organizers select projects that are loosely related (this time it was about health and life choices, our last time was about love and relationships.) which keeps things really thought provoking.

    This was the second time we had shown a film at the festival but unlike the first time, there were a few too many readings (one is plenty) and slightly more films than our previous experience (last time there were 5-6, this time there was 8). As the screening room is an odd shape, it was very difficult to get people in, seated, and able to see. It also made it a bit difficult to meet other filmmakers in the bar area; honestly the networking at this festival is great and you want to make the most of it. But, everyone should have these problems, and we look forward to future films there.

    It was a stormy night on the lower east side but the festival went on. The setting is very warm and comfortable and the audience was attentive. All in all a great experience to show your films in NYC.

    This was my first film screening for my short film and I really enjoyed the experience. There was great communication between myself and the program organizers. The space was intimate and very homie screening atmosphere. The Q/A was a great opportunity for filmmakers to talk more about their films and get feedback from viewers. This is definitely a great place to screen your film for the first time or just to screen test your film on a crowd.
