It felt wonderful being on the red carpet and seeing the film festival for the first time come to fruition. I think our city is a perfect fit for this type of festival and [there will be an] even bigger, better festival going forward.

– David Shapiro, Mayor of Calabasas

I have been to many festivals over the years, but this has to rank in the top 5 of all time.
