    Such a great festival, screenings were well curated and the talks that ran throughout the day were a particular highlight. As an attending filmmaker I was well looked after and had a great time. A must-submit festival for any Aus filmmaker who has a short that's done the rounds on the circuit and in dire need of a cool, local screening!

    Had such an amazing time at Reelgood. The unique format of the festival made for a fast and fun day of watching films and chatting with other filmmakers. The talks were also really engaging and I was fortunate enough to participate on one of the panels which was very rewarding. Can't wait for next years :)

    A great local film festival run by community-minded filmmakers and lovers! I had such a great time being a part of the festival this year and have to congratulate them on such a successful program :)

    Highly recommend other filmmakers enter and attend - it's a great vibe!

    The entire experience was really positive and I found the communication from you all throughout to be welcoming and informative and all round excellent.

    Reelgood is such a brilliantly run festival and I look forward to coming back next year and entering future films!

    Amazing festival, amazing people, amazing location. Networking needs more stars too, the bar is upstairs from the theatre overlooking the area. It was a great time, if I'm ever in the area again when it's on I'd be there as a fan any time.
