My film was featured and won best movie in this great, supportive, and uplifting festival. The constant communication and feedback makes one feel recognized and valued. Sadly I could not attend the screenings, but the festival recorded audience’s reactions to my film as well as send me a podcast of people reviewing films that were screened there. So, even as someone that could not attend, they made me feel very included, and i’ve experienced this festival despite not physically being there. I have a lot of gratitude towards them.
