The below email was sent to the folks who ran the Williamstown Film Festival. It was written by writer/director Jeff Lycett who's short film, Denim screened there as part of the festival's shorts series.
Being a first time filmmaker, the world of festivals is very new to me. The people at Williamstown were very welcoming and supportive. Not only did they provide a great environment for the screening of my own film, they also gave me open access to other films and made it possible to commune with the other filmmakers. I can't wait to have make another film and I hope they accept me over and over and over again.
