    I was just wondering if you were going to post the winning videos on the KDL teen page. I really would like to see the films.

    We should have them up sometime in June.They will also be shown on WKTV at some point this summer. We’ve been busy working on some exciting changes for the 2013 festival which will be announced soon. Thanks for your patience, Brian.
