    This festival was wonderful. Great communication and the venue was an easy ride for my director! Our film August in the City took home the jury award and we can thank everyone enough for having us and involving our film! Would recommend!

    Amazing experience at Fuse Film Festival. They are small but they are mighty. Looking forward to seeing how this festival grows over the years and how they end up revolutionizing the world of filmmaking for women.

    The best festival for female filmmakers to showcase their talent and work! Alexa and Robin are incredibly supportive, creative women who make the screenings fun for everyone involved. Very communicative. The panel this year was so informative and featured diverse voices across the board. 100% worth the submission fee.
