I attended the Sacramento Film Festival over the last weekend of the event. I got to meet and listen to people in the movie industry and those who practice transmedia. Very educational for those wanting to make a living at making movies.
The "Surreal" segment of the festival had many great movies. Even the Sac-Animation segment had a few enjoyable and humorous moments.
I personally learned a lot from the experience. I recommend going to next year's festival whether you are a filmmaker or not. Especially, the filmmakers in embryo. It is time to be born.
If you didn't attend, sorry. You missed out on some awesome events.
