Another successful festival comes to a close! 
TSAFF 2018 was AMAZING! We saw 4500 attendees over eleven days and presented sixty-four films and panel discussions.  Twenty four filmmakers attended and audiences had a chance to interact with them during Q and A sessions bursting with interesting discussions and ideas. 
A huge THANK YOU to all of our attendees, filmmakers, and supporters. TSAFF would not be possible without you!
