NOTE: This festival is still taking place each week despite the COVID-19 virus. All festival dates have been relegated to private screenings with the same Audience FEEDBACK videos made for the short films, and recorded script readings performed by professional actors for the screenplays.

I was very moved and excited by watching the feedback video. It’s so amazing to see how people react.

    This festival is AMAZING and has the best combination of quality, communication, and professionalism.

    Thank you so much for recognizing my work and selecting it as the winner of Best Performances. It’s truly an honor. Also, the audience feedback video was such a great and exciting way to engaging with viewers.

    It’s been nothing but a true pleasure participating in the festival with my film, and I’ll participate again with my future work.

    Highly recommended!!
