Overall Rating
  • Daniel Gönczy

    To be honest, while entering this festival I was a bit skeptical regarding the worthiness of submitting to an online festival (as you know Youtube and Vimeo are free). However, I discovered it was made in a very fun manner and make you really feel in a festival on your computer and not in a streaming platform. Even though I am not sure it has a large audience, I enjoyed partaking in this online festival very much and see the curated shorts by the FFTG Team. I would recommend it a try!

    I couldn’t get anyone to email back after the awards were cancelled. They selected my screenplay, had me film a video and then heard nothing. I even reached out on Facebook. ☹️

    Dear Melissa, We apologize for the communication lapse after selecting your screenplay and filmed video. The announcement of 2022 results will coincide with the 2023 edition. Thank you for your understanding. We are committed to enhancing our communication moving forward.
