    A great festival. One we were proud to be a part of. You won't find a festival more well put together.

  • This is truly an emerging festival. This was my first time going and I really enjoyed the welcoming nature of the staff and their team. Everyone was received with warmth and kindness. They're very supportive of filmmakers. They have a really good venue and you'll love the town of Greenville. Definitely put this festival on your radar. I can't wait to go back.

    Reedy Reels is a festival with a heart! It's venue is in the center of charming Greenville, SC, offering much to its filmmakers throughout their stay. The FF's organizers were welcoming and worked at establishing events where filmmakers truly have the opportunity to network. Thank you Reedy Reels Film Festival for selecting SILENT NOTES to be a part! And, thank you for honoring me as Best Women's Film and the film's lead, John McGinty, as Best Actor...SILENT NOTES is so grateful for the recognition!

    I was so lucky to have two films in this year's festival, and I have to say both screenings went so well. The organization, the apparent love and care that went into it, and the amazing audience really made this a special event. To be able to come to my hometown and connect with others who love the same thing I love was amazing. Great work all around!
