"Chill"

No Coast Film Fest was an absolute blast! The films screened were some of the best shorts I've seen at any festival, and the opportunity to network and meet other fellow filmmakers was truly incredible. We met so many amazing people and hopefully have made not only future collaborators, but also friends.

 

The same goes for the the No Coast Film Fest team!! Everyone working the fest was so nice and accommodating and made us feel like one of the NCFF family as soon as we arrived. We can't speak highly enough about our experience at NCFF, and we can't wait to go back! I hope anyone reading this hops on the opportunity to submit their film or even just attend the NCFF. You will not regret it!!!

 

p.s. The venue is amazing!!! It was so cool to see our film on the big screen at the Emporia Granada Theatre!!

SPECIAL THANKS
