Filmmaker reviews about Conch Shell Int’l Film Fest 2021:
“It was seamless, immersive and jam packed! We came out far more enriched than we went in. Communication and networking were off the chain! Even though they had tech support, we didn’t need it. The hospitality was amazing. Overall quality, fantastic. Our film, Sweet Rind, even won 2 awards, including Audience Choice!!!” – JR Roache, “Sweet Rind”

“That first edition was thoroughly thought out from the very start. It was an absolutely amazing experience to be part of the selection and meet all the people involved. Congratulations!” -Wally Fall, “Plowing the Stars”
