Hi! The schedule states films up to July 8 but now the page states film festival is over. We missed the first few films but were hoping to watch the last few up until July 8.

Hi Sam...

I have my pass, the festival started yesterday, and all I can seem to access is the page that allows me to purchase a pass? What/where is the festival page? I can't find it.

Thank you,

Film festivals are always so wonderful for anyone who attends. This one will probably be no different. I look forward to any recaps or updates that you might have for those who are unable to attend.
