    It was a pleasure to be there, with our two actress nominated Desiree Díaz and Ella Hillier for "MisfitSized Track 2", and I would participate again with my next fanfilm. A great experience.

  • Fan Film Awards has provided me with an extremely unforgettable experience. Being nominated as a finalist in such a great festival was amazing, and the event itself was a once in a lifetime experience. Being able to give a Q&A panel for the first time in a very wide timeframe was super fun and insightful, both to the audience and myself as a filmmaker. The staff and festival director were all very friendly and helpful, especially as I had many questions as a first timer in a festival. Watching other's films and their panels was also interesting and fun.

    It has been an absolute honor to be among the finalists in a festival that has nominated some incredible films.

    One of the most fun festivals I've been a part of. Eugene and the crew make it happen all the time. Thankful for my script "Obadiah" being a Finalist. You guys rock!

  • Couldn't have been a better experience! Eugene was prompt whenever we had questions, and not only provided a Q&A to every film screened, but had insightful questions tailored to each film as well! To top it all off, you won't find a cooler trophy at any other festival AND the festival handles the shipping (others make you pay outrageous prices for trophies if you win). If you haven't made a fan film before, this festival will inspire you to!
