Submit your Short Film and get it showcased at the FEEDBACK Film Festival in Chicago.

The fastest growing film festival in the world today:

Your film will get screened in front of a large, broad audience.

– We are a feedback festival and you will actually hear what people and film lovers think of your film.

– Your film is screened and then talked about with the audience, lead by a Professional Industry moderator. (NOTE: Screenings are now held in private to maximize the audience feedback video you will receive.)

– We then post the audience feedback video online right after the festival for you to watch.

NEW Showcase: Submit your FEATURE FILM and receive an audience feedback promotional/testimonial video of your film. Great video to use to get into more festivals and/or promote your film.

Screenplay winners get their work performed by professional actor and made into a film.

Accepted films get their film shown at a guarantee full house crowd. Then we turn the cameras on the audience after the film is screened and they'll receive an Audience FEEDBACK Video of your film.

If your film is not formally accepted, email the festival and we will send you the committee's feedback notes on your film submission.

    The Chicago Feedback Fest provides a uniquely satisfying experience for emerging filmmakers! This is evidenced by the feedback videos they share and the WILDSound website that showcases our little movies. Folks like us need folks like them!

    Chicago Feedback Film Festival is an amazing filmmaker friendly event!The program was well organized, and receiving video reviews directly from the judges was great, and helpful! One of my favorite part of festivals, as a filmmaker, is connection with the audiences. The video review, and online interview create a unique and memorable experience.

    A great festival with excellent team and communication. We are thrilled that "Tillie" won Best Short Form Short Film. The feedback video is great. It inspires us to keep on making the films we love. Thank you.
