Starting 2021 - A festival every single week showcasing selected short & feature films, plus screening readings.

We are proud to announce two screenings of your film at our festival during this time.

Screening #1 will take place in LA and will be a private screening for a select group of people. They will then go home after the festival and record their comments of your film. Then we turn those comments into our regular FEEDBACK Festival Video.

For context, here is an example of a video from a recent festival: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EviO64sSbrA

We have already completed 50 of these types of festivals to great effect since the March sheltering occurred. In a strange way these videos are actually better than the ones we do at the live events because we can get 5 times as many comments.

Screening #2 takes place one time only (for FREE) VIRTUALLY for all to see on our online feed every single Friday night. 52 festivals in 2021. Already these screenings are garnering an audience of 1000s each week.

So in the end you will have TWO showcases of your film and you'll receive your audience feedback video 1-2 days after the Virtual Festival. Plus, get an audience that will be viewed by 15x more people than our regular festival at the cinema.

We also provide blog & podcast interviews during the festival to further promote your work.

I thought that the feedback video was one of the best gifts this short film could bring me. Everything the audience said was so precise, every emotion… They captured the essence of the film! I never thought it could go so far. It really inspired me to keep on working.
– Director Laura Garcia (ALEX)

Submit your Short Film and get it showcased at the FEEDBACK Film Festival in Los Angeles.

Screenplay Festival also takes place every single month.

The fastest growing film festival in the world today:

Your film will get screened in front of a large, broad audience.

– We are a feedback festival and you will actually hear what people and film lovers think of your film.

– Your film is screened and then talked about with the audience, lead by a Professional Industry moderator.

– We then post the audience feedback video online right after the festival for you to watch.

Accepted films receive an audience feedback video of your short film. Wach recent examples: https://www.youtube.com/watch?list=PL-0CVDAfvxir6Bsb1MUKQmvsa-CIyc5kW&v=ncugdy-VKPg

– As you can see watching past event videos, this is NOT a thumbs up/thumbs down film critic festival. It’s a positive discussion of each film talking about what the movie is about. We never venture into one of those easy negative discussions.

– WILDsound is proud to be a credited festival with IMDB.com. After you film is screened at our festival, you can add your film and cast/crew to their site.

And no matter what happens, every film receives FULL FEEDBACK of their submitted film and we tell you honestly why we made our decisions, to accept or not at our festival. (Written Feedback comes your way as per your request.)

No other film festival in the world does what we do!

Read recent testimonials from past filmmakers who have had their work showcased at the festival:

I always thought that once a film is finished (or abandoned, as someone said once…), it no longer belongs to the filmmakers – it belongs to the audience. This festival is the perfect illustration of that. I very much appreciate the fact that your audience took the time to watch MEDIATION in the first place, and then chose to stay after the screening to discuss it. As a writer-director, I couldn’t ask for more – if there is an audience that cares enough to talk about a film I wrote and directed, then I’ve done my job.
– Francisco Lorite (Mediation Short Film)

It was very cool. The audience was amazing. It was exactly the kind of reactions we were expecting when we were making the film. Thank you again !
– Jean-Baptiste Aziere (MERKUR, Short Film)

I was thrilled to finally have the opportunity to see real people react to the film. All the feedback I have had so far has often been either critical or negative (in the case of many professors at my school) or effusive (because I have been present in person at many of the projections). The WILDsound audience could speak freely and honestly and so their impressions were a joy to see. I was also over the moon to see that many in the audience seemed to have grasped and engaged with the main story arc but also with some of the sub-themes of the film. I took a risk by making a film that is somewhat open-ended and one which depends more on visual and musical communication rather than verbal communication. I am delighted to see that, for some in the audience, this paid off.
– Director Don Duncan (A SIGN)

For me it was really great to get response from the audience. I have worked hard to finish the project. And i loved the way the audience is trying to find their answer of meaning that is captured in the film. I want to Thank you for showcasing my film. The audience feedback video was awesome.
– Jan-Willem de Kraaij, Short Film (LA COMMEDIA)

I thought that the feedback video was one of the best gifts this short film could bring me. Everything the audience said was so precise, every emotion… They captured the essence of the film! I never thought it could go so far. It really inspired me to keep on working.
– Director Laura Garcia (ALEX)

The feedback was great. Most of the people liked it, so I am glad you screened it at your festival.
– Martin Rosete, Short Film (VOICE OVER)

It was such an amazing experience, the cast and crew love the feedback video and I’m spreading the word for your festival to as many people as I can. It’s such an amazing idea. Your statement of “the audience LOVED our film” is also very touching.
– Scott Lyus (Short Film, Silently Within Your Shadow)

I was very moved and excited by watching the feedback video. It’s so amazing to see how people react.
– Erich Steiner, (Short Film, In the Still of the Night)

It made me so happy to watch the feedback of my film. I wish I could have been there. I love people who are open minded and ready to see with their heart. And I love cinema. As most of the people there love movies too.
– Director Laura Lehmus (Alienation)

First, i must say I m very excited that my film had the opportunity to be seen by this audience. Interesting observations by a very intelligent audience.
– Emy Tzavra-Bulloch, Short Film (MINOTAUR)

I loved hearing all the different interpretations from the different audience members. Everyone comes to a screening with different backgrounds and history, and that all informs the way in which they receive and perceive a film; it was fascinating to me, and I thought everyone had very valuable things to say.
– Filmmaker Sarah Deakins (Greece)

The festival experience was great. I never have a chance to record audience comments, so I’m very happy that people from Toronto gave me such single-hearted comments.
– Yangtong Zhu (MY MILK CUP COW, Short Film)

It was amazing to see the audience interact with the film. As a short filmmaker you rarely get the opportunity to get that much of detailed feedback from an audience. The general statement “It looks beautiful, but what the hell is going on” didn’t come as that much of a surprise as it is similar to reactions we received from other audiences :-) However, I myself enjoy films (or any piece of art for that matter) where there is lots of room for personal interpretation. So it is not that much about the intention of the writer or director, but more about what the audience makes of it for themselves. So in that sense I very much enjoyed the different interpretations and speculations concerning the story.
– Daniel Reimer, (Short Film, Bell Tower Enigma)

It was absolutely great and exciting (seeing the FEEDBACK Video on my film). Thank you and the audience a lot. I also watched feedbacks of other works that screened. I need to admit that the audience in Toronto is much more film literate, and has a greater sense than most audiences that I have ever seen. The comments and reactions to the film was really nice. Although it was screened in many festivals and events in various countries, that video is the only real feedback that I got from an audience except in my country and except from people working for festivals. It was great too see that the film is still meaningful, fun to watch and has a real reflection in different countries.
– Kagan Kerimoglu (The Wheel of Time, Short Film)

    This is just a really cool festival. Especially during COVID, on the indie circuit it can sometimes feel a little isolating applying to places without having an actual screening. FEEDBACK Film & Screenplay Festival manages to do it virtually and really does a good job of putting your work in front of real people, while capturing unique perspectives on your work. Added bonus is doing a written and podcast interview with the fest. Really cool - definitely plan to apply again!
