If you want an excuse to spend four days totally immersed in all aspects of filmmaking, surrounded by a small supportive group of people who know what is happening right now in the film industry, then this is as good as it gets. – Josiah Cuneo, REMEMBERING THE FUTURE

If you are a beginning filmmaker or an experienced filmmaker looking for feedback and networking, this lab is for you.  I could never have finished my film, “Ice Eagles,” without the knowledge that I gained from the Lab.  I will, in turn, support future Labs to allow this terrific resource to continue to flourish. Tom Henderson, ICE EAGLES

I took away quite a few nuggets of wisdom,  that I will use in my business and my future films.  – Michael Turner, STOP THE STIGMA

This is a GREAT destination for filmmaker’s to bring their projects.  The lab setting is so valuable and the connections you’re able to make is not something found at most festivals (since this is a LAB!).  Unique opportunity not to be missed.  And….they help cover travel and lodging!!! … A great event run by great people.  – Brad Robinson (GHOSTS OF NEW YORK)
