AIFS Wrap Up

Wow!  What a weekend!  We at Twitchy Dolphin Flix are just blown away by all of the love and support from the filmmakers and the fans.  Putting on a fest isn’t easy.  Putting on a fest for true indies is harder,  but so rewarding.

We just want to thank everyone again for a great time.  Our fest is not about egos or star spotting.  it’s about real indie filmmakers showing their hard work.  We’re tired, but ready for next year.  Submissions start in early 2014!  For a full list of winners.
