It's a Wrap!
What an amazing Festival it has been! As we reflect on the last 15 days, we hope you were able to experience with us the wonders of filmmaking and the community it creates, the variety of styles and the core human stories we all share. From Opening Night (Al Pacino, pictured above) to Closing Night, from stars to ingénues, from veterans to new-comers, we all came to see the world together.
