David was gracious enough to open our festival before a very enthusiastic audience at our festival last Thursday. He said " Philip K Dick would have been astonished there was a festival named after him". David was also of the judges of our festival and was very pleased with the films he reviewed. We will miss you Dave and thank you for the opportunity to having met you.
