    This is an up and coming film festival, fully committed to expanding and enriching its genre. It is able to correct any short comings immediately and spared no expense to expand the audience of Christ. I intend to premiere an upcoming animation here and submit another animation in 2019. God Bless!

    I had a good time attending this festival, screening my film and watching those made by others. I also met some good people and appreciated their sincerity in creating faith based movies. What was particularly useful to me were the seminars with guest speakers, which helped me gain insight in this genre and network with those involved. Praise the Lord for giving me this opportunity. Amen.

    The Festival was very organized and most everyone is in the Christian Entertainment business. It's fun to meet new people who have the vision to bring God's standard into the world. The accommodations are right there. A Starbucks coffee shop is about a 5-minute walk away and another 2 more minutes a Walgreens for little snacks.
    The awards dinner was excellent and the awards ceremony was professional and special. About 500 people were present at the awards evening, it could have been more. Everything was fantastic.
