The Final Hour of Roger Lawrence"

I can't recommend NCFF enough. The uniqueness of the venue, the hospitality of the staff, and the entertaining program they put on made our experience really enjoyable. I plan on submitting all my future films to the festival. I'm looking forward to seeing how much it improves next year!
