What Some Of the People That Know Us Best Are Saying About Us
CJ and team always put on a great festival! One of my favorites by far!
I loved attending this festival, the guys that run the festival are very kind and friendly and love helping other filmmakers. They were very welcoming and supportive of my film, the selection of films were outstanding there was a lot of good quality films.
I loved the location, and so easy to find parking! I arrived early, but everyone was so kind and once it began, it was a great venue! My only regret was that, because of a personal situation, I had to leave early and could not take advantage of all the networking opportunities that continued on throughout the rest of the day into the evening.
A fun festival in the great town of Asbury Park!
