From Charles – “My mission in creating this festival is to gather stories with perspectives from all vantage points. Short documentaries can open our eyes to a variety of subjects, people, and places we may be unable to explore in our daily lives. I would also like the fest to encourage filmmaker interaction and
community. Through this interaction with peers filmmakers can challenge each other, learn from each other, and create lasting partnerships”.
