  • I wasnt able to attend, but I know Willy and Tom of Breaking Fate and they put on great film festivals, and I was lucky enough to be selected for this fest even though I was unsure my film would classify as hardcore horror. Appreciate being selected and I will most definitely do so again!!

    I was unable to attend but the fest was very good with contacting me before the event with the event details and asking for additional info. I also followed the event on Facebook and there were lots of updates leading up to the event and plenty of pictures after. Really wish I could've made it out because it looked like a blast!
