    I greatly enjoyed the 2023 Gung Ho! Revolution film festival. The venue (the central branch of the SLPL) was excellent, and I loved the amount of local programming at the festival. I definitely will be submitting to this festival again.

    Had an excellent time at the festival. Nathan is trying to do something special here, and I'm looking forward to returning next year.

    Lots of musical acts and films, with most of the filmmakers in attendance. The festival is run by filmmakers, so there's a lot of care and effort paid to some details that might otherwise be overlooked.

    We were awarded the grand prize at the festival which came with a $2500 check. They're the real deal, and I deeply appreciate the endorsement of our film. We're all honored to be the first winners of the festival.
