After the uplifting excellence of the Beaufort International Film Festival experience, I feel compelled to urge all members of our community to plan to attend next year's festival.
We should be proud that this event has earned the respect of those who create and appreciate independent films and the great stories that those films tell.
Kudos to Ron Tucker, Rebecca Berry, arts media who provided great advance coverage (especially Jeff Evans, Margaret Evans and Mark Shaffer at Lowcountry Weekly, and the teams at Beaufort Lifestyle and the Beaufort Gazette) and all volunteers who helped to make the festival a huge success.
Neighbors who weren't able to make it out for this special experience missed a real treat, and should mark their calendars in indelible ink to attend next year.
