Attendee Testimonial

The Pink Room

Words cannot express what an honor it was to be a part of your enthusiastic festival held in such a breathtaking location. From the opening evening reception, where many friends were made within the hour, to the awards ceremony, where we were sad to be saying our goodbyes, to trying to view each and every film between forums and receptions, the experience could not have been any more satisfying. We thank you and are already contemplating our next film in hopes of seeing you all again
