WOW! What an exciting time! The 9 days of films, workshops, parties, networking and film fun was had by many! Film makers from all over the world gathered in Sedona, Arizona for the 19th Annual Sedona International Film Festival. This yearly event has grown in name and recognition and from the mouths of the film makers themselves, this is one of the highest end and nicest festivals they’ve been to.
We would like to congratulate the winners of this year’s accolades which include Chittagong, based upon actual events of India’s Chittagong Uprising, and Least Among Saints, the story of a solider back from war and a young man who has never known peace in his life who become unlikely friends, tied for the Audience Award for Best Drama at the 19th annual Sedona International Film Festival.
