    The SCFF was amazing! This year, it was held in Chapel Hill, and as a filmmaker, my +1 had a wonderful time. It was so much to meet everyone, and the entire time we felt accommodated and taken care of. It was such a nice experience to end the event by having dinner with some of the industry's best! The hard work you put into organizing the event was definitely exemplified as you entered the theatre. I'll definitely be coming again next year.
