MovieMaker mag names us as one of the 25 Coolest Film Festivals!

NBD. Just a little humble brag...

A few weeks ago we received an email from MovieMaker Magazine (the nation’s leading resource on the art and business of making movies and the world’s most widely read independent film mag) letting us know we've been chosen as one of the festivals to be listed on their 2016 "25 Coolest Film Festivals in the World". 🙌🏽 👏🏾 🎉

Some of our very own favorite festivals have had the same honor (shout out to Flyway Film Festival, True/False Film Festival), so we're incredibly humbled to be listed next to some of the best (and apparently coolest) festivals from around the world.

The Fall 2016 print issue will be appearing on newsstands starting September 20, but will have special distribution at the Toronto International Film Festival before that date, so if you are attending TIFF you'll be able to pick up a copy. You can read the article online HERE.

We'd love to thank whomever nominated us (you're swell!), the esteemed panel for choosing our little ol' fest, to our volunteer-run staff, and to the amazing MSP community for continually supporting our efforts. Thank you, MovieMaker Magazine, you've made our day (and year)!
