  • It has been an amazing experience; thank you so much to the Festival's crew for the great recognitions: Best Director Music Video, Best Music Video, Special Mention: Production (June), Best Cinematography, 2nd Best First Time Director (July) for my project CHANGE.
    A big big thanks also for giving me the opportunity of an interview, and for the reactivity in email exchanges we had.

    We are honored and deeply grateful that our film “The McHenry Trial – Don’t Judge a Kid by Their Hoodie,” was selected as an Award Winner in your festival. The festival is well-organized with great communication. May the festival continue to provide filmmakers a platform that fosters creativity and self expression.

    Excellent festival! We've had a lot of disappointing experiences with the festival circuit, but the 1st Monthly Film Festival was one we won't forget, as they really understand what filmmakers are trying to do. This was the first festival we felt actually got it in terms of what were presenting!
