“Once again the weekend proved to be a true celebration of the art of cinema, says Executive Director Karen Arikian. We are so moved by the continued support of our community and their appetite for the films we offered this year.” “Our audience really embraced the filmmakers & talent in attendance this year, and that means so much to us as a Festival”, says Director of Programming David Nugent. “My fellow programmers and I worked hard to select both challenging films & crowd pleasers and its great to see the warm reception that each received.”
