A terrific staff and volunteer team made this a festival well worth traveling to. Everyone was friendly and professional. The venue (Laurelhurst Theater) was a great gathering place in a neighborhood ...with lots of other amenities. The hospitality team was great, too, and set me up with a wonderful homestay as a filmmaker. Thanks! See More
