    An amazing community of punk love. Sandie West brings a diverse and talented crowd of filmmakers, and it was an honor to be among them. Looking forward to more in the future of this festival!

    We’ve done a bunch of festivals and hands down, this event stands out from all the rest. Incredible professionalism and communication. The people are fantastic to work with I am just so impressed by this event and the people that this particular festival stands in an entirely different place way above any other event that our film has been in and we’ve won over 50 film festival awards, so our film has been in a bunch of different festivals. This one is just the best. If I could only pick only one film festival out of all of them to be in, this is without a second thought, the one.

  • I was pleased to enter my screenplay into this genre film festival and be recognized as an Official Selection. However, they have not yet announced the Best Screenplay winner. I look forward to learning who won. Finally, the entry fee is quite reasonable.
