DEFY ATTRACTS A VERY ENGAGED AND RECEPTIVE AUDIENCE. SPEAKING BOTH AS A FILMMAKER AND A VIEWER, IT’S IMPOSSIBLE TO LEAVE DEFY WITHOUT FEELING INSPIRED.
— Julie Morey, Filmmaker, "Side By Side"

“This young festival has all the markings of a great underground mainstay to come. It is tightly run by a passionate team and has an all-around fresh, brazen feel about it. I look forward to watching it grow and draw the most interesting and unusual voices from around the world.”

— STAVIT ALLWEIS, FILMMAKER, “COOKING WITH CONNIE”
