I attended Animaze last week and had so much fun. All the screenings and conference panels where great. This festival may be young but it is surely going somewhere. To Laurie, Tom and Martin...keep up the good work!!

Timothy Benson screenwriter Hooked

"I attended MIAFF in Montreal this past weekend and was so happy that I made the trip up from NY. Laurie, Martin & Tom were incredible hosts and put on a beautiful 4 day event for the filmmakers, writers and guests of the festival - starting with a slew of amazing films/screenings, informative panels from industry leaders, tasty BBQs, after hours dinners/parties, an amazing 360 VR dome, and the list goes on. Animaze is a must attend festival on today's FF circuit. Bravo, guys! Thank you for the amazing experience."
