Hi JoDa,
Thank you so much for the opportunity for Abigail to be part of this event last night. And making it more of a family screening. That is a great idea for next year. A separate day for families and students to attend 🙂
Abigail really had a nice time and has more confidence to be more part of things in the future. Seeing her animation on the big screen also made it more clear where I need to direct her in her next creation.

Dear JoDa,

Many thanks for an exciting and thought provoking Festival – along with winning the Award it made our trip to New York very worthwhile.

Hi JoDa,

We want to extend a huge thanks to you for hosting our short film “Curse Of War.”  It was a great weekend filled with interesting and thought provoking films, and networking with the filmmakers that attended. Everything was organized and that time clock worked well.  Wining best war movie is something we are very proud of. I hope our paths cross again.  Please keep in touch and let us know what you are up to as far as your projects and if you plan on having other screenings.
Phillipa Davis, Abdul Malik Abbott and Ronnie Graham
