    was really organized and communicative. They responded to emails very quickly. Very smooth process. Shared information about my film online as well and gave it more exposure. Was not able to attend but joined the Q&A via video chat which was very smoothly done. Great questions

  • While we unfortunately couldn't attend, we were pleased that the festival arranged a video Q&A for the screening of our film, and the communication was prompt and clear at all times. Very happy to participate in the festival!

    The Prescott Film Festival was an excellent experience for us. Lovely and welcoming people were in charge. Very receptive and warm audience response to our film. Communication was a little rocky and slow about details of projection requirements and details about the change in venue for an outdoor screening of The Rounders. We got lost going there though a student helped us find it, but a staff member or volunteer should have led us there. But overall a very good experience. And Prescott itself is a great place to visit and explore.

    Some of the film days could have been tightened up a little for improving the pacing. But that's from the perspective of someone who went to every day of films. So when I'm talking about the quality, it's more so on pacing. Also, to jazz it up I would love to see a horror film at a fastival like this. Psycho was great, but I'd love to see a modern indie or feature film ine horror, thriller genre.
