Annika on San Diego IndieFest

Below is a snippet from an article about San Diego IndieFest in which Annika comments about the festival:

Annika Marks, of ABC Family’s The Fosters, who screened two episodes from her new short film PSA series about water conservation, Stay Filthy, Cali at the festival cited the success of this year’s IndieFest and her positive experience of the festival. “I had a wonderful time,” said Marks. “San Diego IndieFest is a true independent festival which is something we need more of. To me the purpose of a festival is to celebrate the independent spirit and the causes that bring creative minds together – not to make a profit as much as to make a difference. The music, art, food, community, film and energy at San Diego IndieFest are completely energizing – ego-less and inspiration-full.”

….IndieFest 10 – the anticipation is already building, summed up in four words from Annika Marks when we asked her if she would come back to San Diego IndieFest in the future:

“I would love to,’’ she said with a smile!
