Kit Vinsick

I highly recommend filmmakers submit to this rising festival! It offers unique, quality programming and an outstanding experience in a fun town in Central NY. 

Jall Cowasji

Loved being a part of this festival. Very well organized and as a filmmaker I felt really well taken care of.

I give it 5 Stars!

Jennifer Dean

The communication before and during the festival was exceptional. They had a really fantastic group of films and went out of their way to make it a good experience.

Ben Tobin

I had a great time at the festival, and I felt like the staff and the audience really engaged with my film. This wasn't an assembly line festival, each film was given its due.
