THE 21 FILM PROJECT It is with great gratitude that we thank our filmmakers, viewers, fans, staff and volunteers for all their time and efforts during the last nine years of the 21 Film Project.

Filmmakers, please continue to express your creativity and keep making those remarkable videos. We wish you the best of luck in all of your endeavors. Again, thank you for making our festival successful since 2007. – 21 Film Project staff
