  • Highly recommend ART FILM AWARDS! Had a wonderful experience and the staff is great. The festival is an excellent venue and there is no better reward than being appreciated. This festival inspires! I will surely submit future projects again! They truly celebrate the ‘ART’ of filmmaking. One of the best experiences compared to many other festivals.
