Thanks to all our fantastic film fans

It's the first week of October, which means the festival has been over for a few days already. It seems like just yesterday we were planning for the Opening Gala, and now here we are, looking back after another record-breaking year that saw more than 40,000 fans and friends join us for the ride. But all good things must end, and luckily for us, we had a total blast along the way!
