“I would like to let you know that AGAIN we had a fantastic experience at the ICFF Junior. The students really enjoyed the animation movie (yes, they were the oldest ones in the theatre but animation movies can beguile anyone!) and I am impressed again with the fine organization of this event. Congratulations on the success of this needed festival in our community…..and it’s successful thanks to the committee’s efforts and organized teamwork! ~Teacher
