    Y'allywood was a lean and mean three night event. Ruti, Greg and the entire team did a fantastic job programming and putting on a great festival. The Miami Connection screening was a blast to host and watch again with an audience. I highly recommend submitting to this festival. It's one of the best fests Atlanta has to offer.

    I had a film accepted into Y'allywood 3 and Y'allywood 5. Y'allywood 3 was fantastic, but I was so pleased to see how far the festival had come the second time I attended.

    Great people, great venue, very inclusive, and a great selection of films that were screened. It was a pleasure meeting and networking with the folks behind the festival, as well as the other featured filmmakers and folks in attendance.

    I highly recommend submitting for this festival and also attending!

    Y'allywood was great! The staff is friendly, the shorts programming was incredible, and they had great panels. The Q&A between Dan (from The Eyeslicer) and Ben (from Thunder Road) was worth the flight out. I'll definitely be applying next year. Cheers!
