And we’re off!

As the Chinese sage once said: A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single blog post. Or something like that…

Anyway, we at YESFest couldn’t be more excited to be starting in earnest on next year’s festival. As we’ve seen at the YES Cinema over the past few years, the demand for independent films in Columbus has been growing and we’re looking forward to introducing our audience to some great new films they might otherwise have missed. Equally important to us is that we want this festival to be a real treat for our film-makers, and their connection (both personal and artistic) with the audience is a top priority for us.  Above all else we look forward to showcasing some great stories, both fictional and factual, long-form and short.

We’ll be tweaking and expanding the site over the next few weeks, so do bear with us as we get up and running.

It’ll all be worth it. We promise.
