Our 17th Annual film festival was an absolute blast! Great movies, great audience and a great time was had by all. Special thanks to all of the volunteers that helped make this happen and all of the filmmakers who showed up in support of their movies. Check out the acceptance video from the makers of HALFWAY TO ZEN which took home the award for Best Feature Film.  Click on the 2017 festival link to see a list of all winners.
