As we get ready for GloryReelz Christian Film Festival this weekend, I can’t help but think back to the GloryReelz festival two years ago.  It was the first festival that we attended and won. What a special moment that was, to be recognized as “Best Female Director” and then “Best Film”. Since then, we’ve won many awards, but we’re always surprised anytime the emcee calls our name, and it never gets old. In the past two years we’ve been accepted and rejected, attended and not attended, won and lost many festivals. Along the way, we’ve learned a few secrets for film festival success.
