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. All submissions receive feedback on their film no matter what.

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.

    This being our first film festival tour, we loved being part of the Chicago Feedback Film Festival and thankful for all the guidance and support they have shown us through the entire process. Matthew shared his knowledge and experience in the film festival world that helped us navigate a few things that came up for us. Thanks Matthew!

    The audience feedback was truthful, thoughtful and sharing these reviews with the filmmakers is truly unique. Thank you again for having us and for rewarding us Best Drama Film. We will be back with another film soon.

  • Hearing feedback on one's film is so rewarding. Finding that you've connected with an audience is the greatest prize. And that is the great aspect to this particular festival, you actually receive something worth having.

    Thank you for this wonderful festival! I was already incredibly honored to have been chosen, but then winning the Best Performances prize was a huge emotion! Thank you for your clear communication, your commitment to young directors and above all this feedback that is so precise, so precious to listen to and pleasant to receive. That's a real plus, thank you!
