Here are more examples of what indie filmmakers are saying about the 2020 I See You Awards®:

"What an amazing festival, from communication to quality of the online show itself. Corona has been a struggle for everyone but I See You Awards handled with such professionalism and vigor. Not only did they make sure everyone understood what to do and how to do it but it was a true example of how all festivals should be communicating to their audiences and artists. Take note festivals, this is how it's done!" - Kyle Couch

"This year is the first year I have had a film in festivals, and of course Corona came calling and I am missing out on the real-life experience of meeting other filmmakers, attending awards ceremonies and seeing the wonderful films being offered. But Terri and crew made this an amazing festival, great communication with the filmmakers, selecting a diverse array of films, putting on a classy awards ceremony online...I found myself clapping along with them. Congrats Terri, everyone who helps make the festival happen, and to all the filmmakers!! - Barbara Barton
