We are a seminar/workshop festival with screenings and distribution awards. Filmmakers attending the NICFF have priority in the screening schedule. We understand not everyone can attend but expect a core group of our selected films to have the filmmakers attend and support the festival.
Response from festival:
I'm sorry you feel that way. I don't know what dozens of film festivals you have attended but film festivals always charge tickets to attend their festivals, ceremonies and seminars. We have yet to charge anyone to attend our festivals because we haven't had one in person yet because of covid.
But God willing we will have one next year. If you are not happy with our festival then you can continue attending the dozens of the "so called" festivals you attended for free.
