In the film eliminations, our doors will be open to the films which are in standard level of our festival and which we feel the labor.

- Our Difference
There are so many festivals and it is almost impossible to know that which ones of them are really the best or the most accurate to distribute your film. Many of them are very costly or they do it for you with taking large amounts. Andromeda Film Festival, which is open to everyone from all over the world, is the only festival that can offer you an honest and equal competition in the festival and will make your PR without an expectation. The most important factor that distinguishes us from other festivals in our 3-season adventure is, accepting all the films which are standard about cinematography and directing to the Official Selection. Second one is distributing your films to different festivals, receiving waiver code for you. Our third biggest difference is that our entrance fee is suitable for every segment and we host all filmmakers on this platform. After we receive the movies, we do not separate our paths with the filmmakers like other festivals, on the contrary, we stay in touch with them, protect their work and support them. The experienced team that we have gathered to offer you these opportunities provides you a film and festival network. Withal, thanks to this feature, which is among the privileges of our festival, there is also the promotion of your film on the film platforms with which we are connected, to maximize you.

- Social Platform Supporting
Watching films in our busy daily life is difficult for most professional distributors and filmmakers. However, it is a fact that social media is indispensable for all of us, so we are constantly sharing, throwing hashtags and this enables us to reach the right audience. We have a network of films and festivals which is consisting of our lower branches and partners. In this way, with these networks, we ensure that the right people reach you, through hashtags, comments, advertisements, shares, and social platforms. In addition, we share the films that you send, with many different film festivals and platforms; We are trying to get you considerable discounts by providing the network with other festivals.

    From Christopher R. Owens, President, CESO Enterprises, Inc. crowens@cesony.com:

    On behalf of CESO ENTERPRISES, INC., Alyssa Dann, Chris Oledude, and all of our production participants, I would like to compliment the organizers and operators of the Andromeda Film Festival. When we created our first music video (which was long enough to be a short film), we knew nothing about film festivals. With the help of FilmFreeway, we started researching. The categories were good. Everyone who contacted us on behalf of this festival was helpful. The submissions looked excellent.

    It was indeed exciting to discover this new world and to be so warmly welcomed by the inhabitants!  To have GEORGE FLOYD: SAY THEIR NAMES selected for inclusion was an honor in and of itself.
    We were happy to “get the word out” and continue motivating people worldwide to consider the injustices embedded within our nation’s criminal justice system. After all, situations where a powerful segment of the population uses its law enforcement apparatus to abuse and oppress other segments of the population are recognizable in and common to many societies.
    We recommend submitting your work and we certainly intend to participate again in the future. Peace and stay safe!
