First and foremost, a heartfelt thanks to each one of you. The festival weekend was a treasure trove of wonderful connections, and we’re thrilled to have shared this adventure with you. The films left a mark on our local audiences, serving as a source of catharsis for many, and so much fruit sprouted from seeds sown many years ago. Juicy.
