I was ecstatic to return to the festival for the third time with both the script and CAREGIVER because Nightmares is a special event. After many years of making films, it wasn’t until my first time attending in 2018 that I finally experienced community and the sense of belonging to something that felt right. This year was no different and even better in many ways. It was wonderful seeing and catching up with so many talented friends, both old and new.
Festival directors Jason Tostevin and Chris Hamel do a fantastic job of encouraging and facilitating this connection. Thank you to them and the whole Nightmares team for the wonderful experience.
