  • I am very honoured to be included in this prestigious art film festival. The organizing was smooth and the festival team very accommodating towards the artist. I would love to be a part of AVIFF again in the future.

  • The festival coordinators really care about your work and reach out and walk you though the whole process. The festival ran online in 2020 and it was handled with professionalism and care. I highly recommend this festival.

    I enjoyed working with the AVIFF staff who eventually also awarded our film Call for Dreams. The communication was fluid, creative and transparent all along. I look forward to working with AVIFF again in the near future hopefully in normal times as AVIFF could not happen physically this year obviously but was never the less successfully launched online.

    June 2020
  • The organizers were very responsive and reliable communicaters throughout the whole process. Obviously, this festival was only able to be held online, but just based on the range and quality of selected films, it was still an enjoyable event. Personally, I enjoyed watching all the other selected films the most and maybe, moving forward, offering festival films online for a limited time might be a good idea to reach an even larger audience.
    I was also excited to receive a prize which always comes as a welcomed surprise.
    A big thank you to the festival organizers and all the filmmakers!

    My only experience is that they selected my film, which was an honor. When this is your first short film you want whatever exposure you can get and I wasnt expecting to premiering Audtions for Master Chan at such a prestigious film festival.

    Thanks for the opportunity. I don't take it for granted.
