It was a pleasure to be a part of this festival. They were fast and efficient with communication and treated the filmmakers wonderfully. Screenings are spread out, but the selection is great. Many thanks to everyone involved!

They bring together an amazing selection of film. Everyone connected with the festival is friendly and supportive. The venues are great. They respect film and how they are shared. This one should continue to grow and have a bright future.

The intimate atmosphere is extremely positive and welcoming. Loved the people I met there - because it was small you get to spend more time with all the filmmakers present. Also fantastic location in Ontario Canada!
