  • What first attracted me to this festival was that it is for Christian and Faith Based films. We were sending our newest faith based film out and this festival also caught my eye because when most festival are charging an arm and a leg for entry fees, and then most want to nickle and dime filmmakers by charging them extra fees to be considered for everything else past "best film" (which is a huge turn off), The Fountain International Film Festival charged NO FEES at all. WOW! Thank you.

    These folks are very kind and before the festival, communicated very well. However, my only concern is the lack of communication now.

    Our film, THE TEXT was declared the BEST FEATURE FILM, and they sent me the most beautiful photo of the most gorgeous trophy with our name on it. However, that was the last I heard of them. I reached out, asking if I needed to send money to pay for the shipping costs, since I am in the USA and they are in Africa. And I have never heard back. I emailed them twice and sent one Facebook message as well, but have not heard, nor have I received our trophy.

    In the event there has been illness or a tragedy for them, I am so sorry and I hope that is not the case. I would just really love to receive the beautiful trophy, for which we are so grateful to have been declared the winner.

    Overall though, I loved this festival and the great folks running it.
