Overall Rating
  • I'm so humbled my short film Purgatory was included in this amazing, unique, diverse Queer Womxn festival. Every short included in the fest showcased an original perspective from queer womxn filmmakers. Tickets and submission fees were both free! There were accommodations made for viewers who have hearing impairments. Just really well done, thoughtful, powerful. Other festivals could learn a lot from Last Frame!

  • Last Frame Queer Womxn Fest was such an amazing and diverse festival. Communication was amazing at all times and I had the best time networking with the other Queer Womxn Filmmakers on my panel. Thank you! For choosing #TMI to be one of the first festivals to showcase my work. Can't wait to one day attend in person.
