There is so much great work this year to be recognized. Listen to Meryl Streep's Icon Award acceptance speech in this article as she speaks of the current status of the industry.

After all the excitement of the opening ceremonies, PSIFF settled into it's well organized, comfortably stylish rhythm of quiet radiance. This year's festival was one of the most publicized openings in the recent history of the festival with over 135,000 film enthusiast attending. The screenings are almost always sold out and often have a second theater screening to accommodate overflow audience from the waiting lines.

The crowd, comprised mostly of grownups, always excitedly anticipates the featured films that are selected and tailored for those audiences who are world class in their thinking and interested in stories that reflect real life experiences.
