    The Life Screenings International Film Festival is fantastic! My film "A Family Recipe Cannot be Followed Written Down" was selected about a month ago, and me and my actress were invited to attend a Q&A via Skype. The crowd was incredibly engaging and we were impressed by the thoughtful questions that they asked us! Would recommend to anyone looking for quality engagement with their films.

    Great Festival, I couldn't make it to the festival in person, but the hosts graciously made an effort to Skype me in. Would recommend highly.

  • Wonderful experience! Thanks to the Life Screenings International Film Festival. It was a tremendous honor to be interviewed by the audience in Florida and by the wonderful and kind host, Banks who held the laptop for the whole experience so we could communicate properly through Skype and say to us such lovely words about our movie.
    Thanks again,
    Milestone crew.
