Overall Rating
  • Wonderful festival! Definitely recommend! The theater is fantastic and the red carpet was great. There was a photographer there prior to the screening and we were able to get access to our pictures the following day. Very helpful!

    We loved this festival. John and Peter curated a fantastic lineup and scheduled very thoughtful blocks of films. The opening nights, the screenings, red carpets and the final ceremony make you feel like you finally arrived at a festival that is about the filmmaker. Very thankful for MDRFF, we need to make another short just so we can come back and apply again for next year!
