    I have only GREAT things to say about this Film Festival! It was so refreshing to receive such warm, consistent, timely and welcoming communication. Awesome! I was unable to attend the events but Sandy kept me up to date on events and personal feedback on the screening of our film 'Silent No More - Louise Pentz: A Voice for Social Change'. How wonderful is that! Stay tuned for this festival, it's sure to grow with this kind of professionalism and care. I highly recommend the Eureka Springs Human Rights Film Fest. It was an honour ;) I wish the organisers all the very best in their future endeavours and hope to attend a festival of theirs someday. Thank you Sandy.

  • I am so happy my film "Underneath the Make-up, There's me" was included in this festival. Organized really well and great feedback.

    I have only great things to say. While I couldn't attend because of distance, and so can't comment about hospitality and networking everything else was top notch. Sandy Martin was very responsive and enthusiastic. As a young (female) filmmaker, I felt very encouraged and positive about film making as a result of my participation. I would highly recommend.

    I got one of my films accepted to this film festival, but I'm not sure if it screened, since I didn't find it on their screening schedule on their web site.

    It was a very nice festival in a great little town in the Ozarks. It goes by in a hurry but I enjoyed it.
