"It was an absolute honor to be a part of your wonderful festival that I am certain will continue to grow and grow in this beautiful community. I saw some phenomenal films and to be amongst these selections fills me with such pride. I had the pleasure to meet so many wonderful volunteers and to try the fantastic food and see some sights and I have every incentive in the world to find my way back."​ - 2020 Filmmaker
