Filmmakers share what makes FLIC a destination film festival:
FLIC was a really wonderful experience. It’s a smaller festival with a real sense of warmth, enthusiasm and community. David and Jessica, the co-founders of the festival, were great communicators and incredibly hospitable. I had great conversations with other filmmakers, and the scenery can’t be beat. Looking forward to returning!
FLIC was an amazing expereince. The festival had a wonderful program with amazing films, they took care of us, the audience was engaged and attentive and our screening had a full house. Jessica and David, who are in charge of the festival are fellow filmmakers , and they really make this a heartfelt filmmakers festival.
A filmmaker’s film festival! Jessica and David are the most wonderful hosts who treat filmmakers and their films with great care and respect. Well organized from beginning to end. The setting is gorgeous and because the festival is relatively small, it gave us a chance to meet and network with many other filmmakers and audience members. I highly recommend for anyone who is selected to attend. 5 stars.
Loved this festival ! Had such an amazing time networking with other filmmakers & watching great films… David & Jessica put on a world class show!
