We are grateful to everyone who has contributed to the site over the past year, including the many in our community who freely post material. As managing editor, I am especially indebted to Todd Brown, founder and editor, who made all of this possible in the first place.

My fellow editors contribute invaluably behind the scenes, as consultants and advisors, as well as through their written articles here on the site. We are happy to have a grand variety of talented and creative voices from around the globe who offer their own unique perspective with their news articles, festival coverage, and reviews.

Most of all, though, we are grateful to the filmmakers who offer their weird, wacky, and wonderful visions to the world.
