After watching all of this year's entries, I have to say this was the best contest yet. To see entrants from so far away come to compete in Emmaus was fantastic, and the quality of the film making was again, the best yet. Well done as usual Jeff and everyone involved. I will miss Allissa and her crew participating, but Tori and her friends still have 4 more opportunities to kill each other off. Thanks to all of you for this gift to the community and to the kids.
