    What an honour for our little sci-fi comedy film from Ireland to play in such a fun festival run by real fans, but then winning some awards was the icing on the cake.

    A great festival. I can't wait to submit our next film.

    We did a digital festival this year due to covid, and it was so professional and fun ! I LOVED the other films and everyone working on the Midwest Action Fest team. I will 100% be submitting films next year. Highly recommend for action/fantasy nerds !

    Was happy to have this festival be the first to screen my film "Costigan Bloch!" Great communication and while I wasn't able to be there, still happy to be a part of the fest. Cheers!
