    We flew out to Indianapolis for the festivities and had a blast. Great communication from the organizers--not to mention an awesome, diverse selection of films. Will definitely be submitting again in the future!

  • What a disaster. The organizers didn't promote the festival or the movies at all. They didn't post any signs on the screening room, so even people actively looking for the screenings couldn't find them. The organizers refused to balance the sound system, so many of the movies were inaudible. And when we gently complained about all of the above problems, the organizers didn't just brush us off, rather they became actively hostile. We managed to get butts in seats by spending HOURS working the crowd at the adjacent horror fan fest. So we succeeded, but it was DESPITE the organizers not because of them. Don't waste your time or effort. AVOID Reels of the Dead. Spend your money and energy elsewhere.
