    thank you Alexandra, we loved your film and hope to see you soon

  • THE WORST FESTIVAL I'VE EVER SEEN Sorry to say but you are the unprofessionals here. I had several testimonies in my mails and by phone. I don't care about the refonds as i told you by mails, it's your attitude and the way you Exploit the creators ! A shame ! They use your material and make the creators pay for everything even a zoom session (23 Euros) never saw that in more than 200 sélections i had around the world. Le pire festival auquel j'ai participé et beaucoup des participants étaient du même avis que moi. Ils exploitent votre travail et vous le font payer une hallucination ! même un session zoom pour assister a la cérémonie ils te la font payer 23 Euros. Une honte totale ! Quand on paie des entries on joue le jeu et ca sert au festival pour son organisation on le sait bien. mais là.... Une belle arnaque ! Si vous n'avez pas les sponsors pour financer votre festival, ne le créez pas, et surtout ne pompez pas le fric des créateurs !!! A bon entendeurs !

    Response from festival:

    we refund your money marc, we deleted your film from our festival as you didn't respect the rules of the festival and all the winners get the link for free and it was a choice for the rest of the filmmakers to take buy a ticket and we can share how unprofessional you are in the emails.
    we appreciate your talent, but not your behavior.

    It is the worst ever festival I have been with. The man named, Mark, sent me and replied me wrongly for a week long. It drives me crazy. AFter all, he said, it was wrongly sent. Then, what he started to write to me is blaming with a kind of rude words. I will copy and paste here some of the emails as they are.

    Thanks for the prompt reply.

    The film's title is " A Road to Freedom of Myanmar"
    . Director is Sandra Tingalay.


    If my film is not on the schedule, it is hard for me. I have sent the film ( 28 min 58 seconds) already.
    Also sent the video of introduction for the film.
    I will send a media kit tomorrow.

    Hi Mark,

    Good Morning.

    Now, I feel confused.
    You wrote to me as follows and I spread these words to my professors, my school, crews, casts and friends and supporters.
    Now you said, it is just a submission of a script, it will humiliate my image.
    Please straighten it out on time.
    Let me know what I should do on my end.

    I am very worried and concerned.

    to me

    Hi Sandra,
    according to your situation, Mrs.Maggie will let your film be screened online because she doesn't want to let you down in front of your friends, about the program that we posted sorry we won't be able to change the design.

    N.B you shouldn't do like this at any festival again as they will add you to the black list and this is not good for any filmmaker

    Please kindly see that he wrote to me that , "N.B you shouldn't do like this at any festival again as they will add you to the black list and this is not good for any filmmaker ." He means that I cheated him and teh festival. In fact, he tried to hide his fault that he wrongly sent me the mail for many times.
    He wrote the other two bad words too. If you are interested, let me know. I can share all the communication emails from the beginning to the end.
    Yes, it is the worst ever experience I have through Filmfreeway with La Femme. Otherwise, all other festivals I participated are great.
    I wrote here not to make their image down, but to let know all that the story can be upside down and could be flipped to hide the faults in order to blame the participants down. When I asked the responsible person's email to explain, he did not give me.

    Response from festival:

    yes, you are a writer who submit her script in the unproduced script competition, kept attacking us to screen your film, if you received an email about the film and submit a script. how come you expect any festival to screen it, anyway we reported this issue to filmfreeway as we found it not your first time to attack the festival to get an award or to be part of the festival, @filmfreeway used to have professional filmmakers. we used to have these kinds of problems, from amateurs. so we hope filmfreeway be more concerned as it was
