The Corridor. Defended.
"Festival was so fun and I met some awesome people. Great event!"
"Wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed the festival. I attended all but one of the programs this year and made some new filmmaker friends. And it was great to see my work up on the big screen in a very strong and interesting field of films. It was a great networking opportunity, and
I am very sad that the Sunshine is closing its doors as a theater! The festival was a good concluding celebration of this beloved indie venue. Many thanks for the giving my film, such a fine screening event!
