    I really want to thank Peachanda for creating such a unique and special festival and for inviting me to be apart of it. Ms DuBose has cultivated a festival with true heart and is masterful at choosing talent that is interested in starting new conversations; conversations that focus on healing the current heartbroken state of our country. Sitting in this small but mighty festival I couldn’t help but feel that I was among greatness including the legacy of Peachanda DuBose herself. By bringing together great theatre performances with unique films The Peach Theatre & Film International Festival has struck a unique cord that illuminates the connection between these two art forms and showcases the best of what they have to offer. I was incredibly honored to win the award for Best Social Short film and to be recognized at this prestigious festival.

    Being selected for this festival was an encouraging experience. From the beginning, communication was clear and timely. I could feel the love and dedication inside of each correspondence. Peachanda and her team made sure to make us feel special every step of the way. Even though I couldn't attend in person, I was given the opportunity to create an acceptance speech video for my win allowing me to feel included further. The award arrived in the mail just days after the award show. Truly a professional event with value at every turn. Wishing you many years of success.

    The minute I walked into the theatre, I felt the creativity and love from Peachanda and all the filmmakers and artists—The PEACH Theatre & Film Intl. Festival is a one-of-a-kind event where everyone is treated like a WINNER! My only regret is that I wish I could have flown in earlier to attend this remarkable event's three days. There is no number of stars to rate my wonderful experience attending this festival.

    This was my first experience dealing with an international film festival and to be around a dynamic array of creatives was overwhelming! Ms. Peachanda DuBose, thank you so much for establishing this platform and I am a fan for life!
