A forest does not become full grown in a year, nor will our film festival. What is enduring however is the need for artists to be artistic, to find a way to express themselves. This is our goal--to give filmmakers a boost, a place to meet and learn, the knowledge to find their audience, and the encouragement to continue what they are driven to do in the face of nearly impossible odds.
Help us to continue to grow this festival, to support artistic achievement and the joy and insight it yields to society. Help us support independent filmmaking.
