Starting 2021 - A festival every single week showcasing a feature film with select short films to open the show.

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

Screening #1 will take place in NYC 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 30 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.

NEW Showcase: Submit your FEATURE FILM and receive an audience feedback promotional/testimonial video of your film. Great video to use to get into more festivals and/or promote your film. All submissions receive feedback on their film no matter what.

Screenplay winners get their work performed by professional actor and made into a film.

Accepted films get their film shown at a guarantee full house crowd. Then we turn the cameras on the audience after the film is screened and they'll receive an Audience FEEDBACK Video of your film.
