    Thanks for screening "Nefarious" in Chicago! Communication was excellent from the fest. We were unfortunately unable to attend, but I understand the whole event was a great success!

    Reels of the Dead is an amazing festival hosted by genuinely awesome people! The film screenings were a blast, and I enjoyed every minute of networking with other filmmakers. I learned a ton, and I would definitely enter again! Thank you for selecting Denizen for Chicago 2019!

  • This was our first film festival. The hosts were so gracious and helpful. The networking and exposure were better than we could have expected. We will definitely submit to their other festivals. All in all, a great experience.
