Filmmaker Reviews of Conch Shell Int’l Film Fest 2021:
“It was seamless, immersive, and jam-packed! We came out much more enriched than we went in. Communication and networking weren’t there! Even though they had tech support, we didn’t need it. Hospitality was amazing. Overall quality, fantastic. Our movie, Sweet Rind, even won 2 awards including People’s Choice!!!” – JR Roache, “Sweet Crust”
“This first edition has been carefully thought out from the start. It was an absolutely amazing experience to be part of the selection and to meet everyone involved. Congratulations!” -Wally Fall, “Plowing the Stars”
