    You people really are with it. Organized, professional, and interesting. A really grand experience, aided, I'm sure, by the wonderful atmosphere of the new Children's Theatre venue.. Made me feel like a real movie maker. Of course, it helped that you awarded me "Best Comedy". Thank you, thank you. Carl Clark

  • Reedy Reels was an excellent experience! We saw some really quality films, and the size is just right to facilitate conversation and meet other filmmakers. We are producing short documentaries to spotlight local creatives, so screening with a festival that cares about SC filmmakers was a perfect match. The festival team was constantly involved in promoting the fest and our film online leading up to the weekend.

  • If the this festival isn't on your radar, it should be. This is an up and coming festival. Matt, Ken, and Mike, as well as their entire team love film and it shows. They put the same amount of passion into the festival as we filmmakers put into our films and They are very supportive of filmmakers. They have a brand new state of the art venue and you'll love the town of Greenville. On behalf of the entire DelanoCelli Productions team, thank you for having us in your lineup. We look forward to coming back soon.
