"When I brought my film to T/F, it was an experience unlike anything else: I was enveloped by a family of the most talented, driven, creative storytellers in the world. Every year since then, I have returned just to be a member of the audience, no movies of my own to show. That's when you feel the profound warmth of this festival -- and the stunning size of the family. Tens of thousands of people make their way to the middle of nowhere for the simple love of nonfiction films. They are the most generous, curious, critical, appreciative, unpretentious audience I've ever tucked in with. I won't ever miss it."
-David France, director, How to Survive a Plague
