“Forget about all those crappy, totally overproduced movies that are playing at your local AMC...this film festival is a great place to see the heart and soul of passionate filmmaking. Q&A's with the directors, lots of freebies and a diverse group of the usual hipster suspects sprinkled with intellectual film enthusiasts and culture vultures make for a great time.” - Carrie E. - Yelp.com
