    The 2021 Love Actually Showcase was an excellent experience!! It was an honor to have my film be amongst so many great shorts that I very much enjoyed watching! This is also the first virtual festival I've been in that invited any filmmaker who wished... to take part in a Q&A, and - in so doing - was the most interactive experience yet during these online-only times.

    It is really wonderful that a festival exists that caters to the romance crowd! The communication and professionalism was top notch. They did an online fest on Valentine's Day as we are in a pandemic and people cannot gather. I think this was an excellent decision. Thank you for allowing fans of these types of films to gather and watch our work.
