Following the spectacular success of the 2018 inaugural festival on Vashon Island WA, which had sold-out screenings, filmmaker attendance from around the world, and an audience base eager for more, we have curated an 85-minute “Best Of” Touring Program that reflects the spirit of the CC festival to enlighten and entertain audiences across the country.
