    Great Festival. I can't thank you enough. I am just so honored to have won Best Screenplay for my script This Is What You Get... Especially since Punk Rock Music is the main theme and inspiration for this script. Wow! This couldn't be more perfect.

    We were informed from Filmfreway that our music video had been included in the official selection but we couldn´t find it anywhere in the festival's web. We received no communication whatsover from the organization itself.

    Our team was honored to be part of this festival in 2020, where our film Anne & Andy took home the Best US Film Award. We were just happy to be selected, to be honest. And as we all know, the pandemic threw everyone a curve-ball, so to the choice to go digital was applauded, even if that probably created a ton of behind-the-scenes work to pull off. This festival was a complete success and I really did enjoy seeing the other films and filmmakers talk, including the hosts, who did a fantastic job. We had a music video shoot the day all the directors got to digitally meet each other, so I'm still bummed we missed that, but overall the experience was phenomenal. It was a great to find a home for our little punk rock labor of love, and I recommend anyone who has ever maybe felt a bit "on the fringes of society" and aren't quite sure where their film fits in the indie world, should immediately apply to this festival. Here's hoping we can be back again someday!!!
