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 think it’s the timely and respectful feedback that has influenced me to enter the festival. For a reasonable price, I can get insightful feedback and a chance to have it read aloud. And it’s a chance you get monthly, which is cool.
- John-Arthur Ingram (Feature Screenplay, Three Play)

Screenplay Festival occurs every single month.

Film Festival occurs 6 times a year in Toronto and Los Angeles

Terrific reading of my screenplay. Please thank the actors for me! The initial feedback was encouraging and it also appropriately threw light on some needs of the script.
– Robert Tolz (Screenplay, Renassance Man)

Absolutely outstanding notes and I can’t thank you enough. Obviously Charlie Kaufman are difficult waters to sail but I am determined to rock on. The first thing I throw out of the boat is He Who Appears To Be He. But a girl can dream can’t she? Count on one thing you will be receiving my rewrite with a boatload of gratitude.
– Kelly Karam (Screenplay, Ole: Rising Above Mith)

Thank you for the feedback! I appreciate it and will work to improve it.
– Evan Schullery (Screenplay, Due South)

Thank you so much for including my spec script in your festival. The feedback you’ve given me is very detailed and useful. I’ll make sure that I make the necessary changes to the script.
– Linsen Oyosa (TV Spec, Brooklyn Nine-Nine)

I want to thank you immensely for the feedback! I’m truly grateful. Feedback and reviews are the main reasons I submit to competitions such as this one. I’m most pleased with this one in particular because the reviewer took the time to make suggestions as to how I could make the script better, most notably with some of my character relationships.
– Chastity Lively (Screenplay, Happy Holidays)

Thanks so much for your constructive and insightful comments! I’m glad you enjoyed SMITHEREENS.
– Hersh Rephun (TV PILOT, Smithereens)

Gratified that people seemed to get it, and like it. I like hearing the comparisons to Modern Family. I made this to be entertaining and I’m so glad that people seemed to be entertained.
- Erik Linthorst (Short Film, TURKEY)

A producer friend of mine who worked on this script suggested sending it in. What a great idea.
- Ellery VanDooyeweert (Short Screenplay, The Writer's Duel)

I’ve been lucky enough to have A Mile in these Hooves screen at quite a few festivals now. I think we’ve screened at around 25 festivals, so far. and, I’ve attended a bunch of them. I can honestly say that attending the FEEDBACK Film Festival was one of the most unique and interesting festival experiences.

    This is a very special Festival. I am so sick of festivals that take your money and do little else to ensure that your screening gets a large audience. This Festival produced an audience of over 200 for our short film LIFT and the others shared on our program. After considerable time in the editing room you don't really see your movie until you witness it in the midst of a full house. Thanks providing that.

    I really enjoyed getting feedback from an audience about my film in the form of a video. I am far away, and it was great to have!

  • A very positive, encouraging review of our screenplay "Steve and Olivia", with extensive notes, a synopsis and logline. Some very valuable insight, especially regarding form and structure, that has been incorporated into a new draft. Looking forward to seeing what the read-through reveals! A most helpful and constructive festival.
