"A few years ago I was thrilled to be invited to show my film 'Death in Love' at the Boston Film Festival. The overall selection was excellent, and the audience was open and appreciative. The festival provided us with a great stay in a beautiful city, and I would be happy to return when I have another film that makes the cut."
