Our very first festival was a huge success this past weekend, wildly exceeding my modest expectations. I’m grateful to everyone who shared, posted, tweeted, and especially those who attended our celebration of short film, and I can’t wait to start working on plans for 2019. But first, I want to recognize our award winners. Thank you to all our jury members for their hard work and for lending us their expertise. Congratulations to these filmmakers but also to all the rest of the filmmakers who allowed us to share their work during the festival. Toronto enjoyed watching your films and we can’t wait to see what you’re working on next!
