  • From the time I entered the festival on FilmFreeway to this week's attendance, Caroline has been there to assist on every level. Her staff is top notch! As this was my first film festival, it exceeded my expectations in every aspect and very satisfying to watch so many great films. The talent is amazing and networking was a plus. So glad I found this great festival! Thanks again, Caroline!!

    This festival was prompt with their notifications, responsive with their communications and accommodating with their assistance. One of my biggest regrets is that I live so far away from the fest itself. I would be happy to submit to this fest again.

    We really enjoyed our film ‘Alien Guy Tim’ being selected to the Atlanta Comedy Film Festival! We were very pleased to see they had a Best Mockumentary category. Caroline and Mikel were super responsive and attentive to any questions we had. Our composer was able to attend and said it was a fun time with high caliber comedy films. Thank you for a great festival experience!
