“SIMA has turned a scary first into a future must. They made our experience easy and fun, providing us with a beautiful, personalized and professional-looking platform for our online screening. Of the over 500 viewers, not one complained of an issue with the SIMA site – for those of us who do events on a regular basis, this was a first. We look forward to the next screening!” – Perrine Vaillant, Director of Southern California, Human Rights Watch
