“Our Philosophy is simple. NO BOUNDARIES for the vision and artistic talent in filmmaking. Our purpose and the only true credit for us is to increase the filmmakers audience and for the filmgoers enjoyment. I want them to laugh, cry, feel good, become connected and inspired. I want them to take away something and apply it to their own lives. We want to encourage filmmakers and directors to produce the realities of life.”

Ben Bahmani, Festival Founder
