  • You never forget your first...

    And FiLMiCFest was my first festival.

    I wasn't able to attend the invitation only screening but I got amazing comments online from people who were there, and so many great comments through the FiLMiC social media promotions.

    Even though the festival is entirely online it was an amazing platform for getting my film seen and now it sits on the FiLMiC website.
    And did I mention it's free to enter? What more could you want?You have absolutely nothing to lose in entering this festival...

    I expected nothing and ended up with (almost) everything..!
    Blown away, FiLMiC... thank you!

    Great team behind organizing this festival. They were always ready to support us in any way possible. Hopefully they'll make it into an onsite festival one day as networking with the other filmmakers would have been great.
