    A great festival organized by folks who genuinely care about sharing and celebrating the quality work of indie filmmakers. Good communication. Though I was not able to attend, it was such an honour to have been awarded Best Director for my short Noctámbulos (Night Owls)! Highly recommended.

  • A highly professional, well organized and communicative festival! Thank you so much! We can't wait to send you some new shorts from Warsaw Film School, for the next festival edition. Keep up the amazing work!

    A hotbed of art house cinema lovers and genre fanatics. The festival shrewdly programs short and feature films and aptly caters to likeminded filmmakers by the founder who is himself entrenched in the realm of independent horror filmmaking.

    Great fest! This was the first one I ever traveled to, and it set a really high bar! Loren is a fantastic communicator and great at making you feel welcomed at the event. Plus, he's super serious about making sure the films get seen—no chatting or texting during the program! Finally, the location is incredible, spitting distance from everything awesome in downtown Philly. Strongly recommend!
