    This meeting was very informative and enjoyable. And thank you all for being so positive and supportive of Action Inc, the movie we showed part way through. If anyone would like to take another look at it, you can watch it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EGNkcWr3c0E

    A few people mentioned possible festivals to enter it into -- I would love any advice you can provide.

    Thanks again for a great evening!
