Overall Rating
  • Thank you for the Official Selection. Overall is average but the festival needs some good improvement. Firstly, set up a Facebook page to engage with the entrants and to promotes networking among filmmakers. It surprised me that there is not one social media handlers in your website.

    Very glad to participate at Indie Suspense Horror Sci-Fi Flm Festival where our movie won the 1st Place Feature Award. The communication and feedback we had with the festival was excellent throughout all the way. Festival organizers and the jury made a great job. Keep it up!
