  • Outstanding film festival that goes far above and beyond helping and promoting indie filmmakers. AFTER THE STORM - Documentary Short Film is honored to have been Selected as an Official Selection at OUT OF THE CAN FILM FESTIVAL. This opportunity is important in spreading greater awareness in #BetterMentalHealthcare WRPN.TV Short, OFTCFF advocates for filmmakers. The festival’s hard work in in securing distribution for indie filmmakers is a blessing in moving a film forward to global audiences. I received helpful, friendly and prompt assistance by festival staff members. I highly recommend this film festival!
