    This festival had great communication and I could see that the festival founder, Christine Parker, really cares about the attending filmmakers! We were honored to have I Baked Him a Cake selected to screen here and I really hope to attend next year!

    While I wasn't able to attend the festival I was able to send a representative to the festival for my film who was blown away by the film selection and had a great time. They also had great communication with quick response times, will definitely submit the the next iteration!
