    I am utterly impressed with the quality and caliber of this festival. Everything they do is with the highest level of excellence, from their manner of invitation, to the selection process, communication, their quality in merchandise, festival festivities, and of course the projects they screen themselves. This is a festival that is bound for greatness and definitely one to watch out for and be part of! I was truly honored to have participated in such a rewarding experience start to finish, and beyond overjoyed at the award for Best Webseries. Thank you Kalakari FilmFest! I am delighted to be part of your festival family!
