    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!

  • I didn't make it there but I had a great experience with those in charge. All communications were fast and professional. I heard this year had some super funny scripts and shows. I feel lucky to just have made Official Selection this year. Look out 2020!

  • Awesome festival. Some hilarious films were shown. All the filmmakers got a moment to share their personal story behind their work and that was pretty cool. My screenplay Loan Wolves won 1st place in the best feature length screenplay competition.

  • While we weren't able to attend in person, communication was friendly and prompt, the festival did a good job promoting everyone's films on social media, and the event seemed well organized. We're very pleased to have been screened here and hope we can attend future editions of the festival in person!
