We had a successful 3 days of the festival watching all of our documentary selections, chatting with friends and taking time to think differently about the world around us! We would like to thank all the people that have helped us make this possible especially those that have contributed to our Pozible campaign. Our entire team volunteered their time for this Festival and so being able to receive some funding to help with promotional materials and for our networking party was fantastic! We are so thankful!
A big thank you goes to the entire APERTURE Festival team. WE DID IT GUYS!
Till next time. If you didn’t get a chance to join us this year, keep an eye out for us next time and join a community that loves ethnographic visual imagery and documentaries. For those that did come to APERTURE Festival we hope you had a great a time as we did.
It’s a Wrap!
