Overall Rating
  • The Reel Black Film Festival was by far the best festival I've attended! Communication was solid and everyone at the festival was so welcoming. It felt like I was screening my film with family lol. The entire team that put together the festival and the audience were so supportive and I'm so happy that I received the opportunity to meet, network, and view other powerful African American films. This team is doing some amazing stuff for the black community of directors and filmmakers and I can't wait to send more of my work here!

    I was not able to attend the event but a friend went in my place. When he texted me a small video after the audience viewed my short, I was almost brought to tears. I felt the love through my phone. They all felt like family. The host encouraged the audience to share a word that described what they watched and the feedback was so valuable. I really wish I could of been! I also feel like it's a great opportunity to network people have reached out to me already. I am truly grateful that I was a part of this festival and I hope to make it in the future.
