DIRECTOR OF PROGRAMMING
"Narrowing down over 1,200 films into a festival lineup of 250 is hard enough, but picking a favorite 5 is nearly impossible. These 5 films hit me the hardest - they made me cry, made me get up and dance, made me cringe in horror and made me proud to be able to showcase such incredible talent."
