“The Shortform Editing Residency is priceless. You walk away with a new filmmaker community, relationships that are deeper and far more enriching than you could ever have established by just going to film festivals. It truly gave me space to discuss my film’s flaws openly, with rigor, and ultimately walk away with a better motion picture.”

“One of the most amazing experiences in bonding with film nerds that I’ve ever had.”
