This Oscar®-qualifying festival has been recognized as one of the premier short film festivals in the world, embracing diverse sensibilities and subjects that capture the zeitgeist of today’s world.

The Aspen Film website describes Martha's work as "deeply personal yet universally relatable—particularly in the age of social media.” The award praises Martha, "this inquisitive director," who "gives new life to what was once thought lost forever through the use of photographs and conversations."
