“RIFF was a great place to showcase our socially minded documentary. The festival had strong ties with local media (our film got TV and print coverage), there were a wide variety of filmmakers in attendance (first timers to Academy Award winners) who I am glad to now know, and festival director, Heather Waters and her staff were just so professional and fun! Our showing at RIFF led directly to invitations to screen for other festivals and audiences, plus offers of support from major corporations. RIFF was the perfect stop in a grassroots campaign that ultimately led to distribution. I’d come back in a heartbeat.”
