  • This is the most awesome film festival in the world! Jessica is purely amazing! Always there to support you and help you with anything you need! Go to Jacksonville and you'll know what I mean. One of the greatest perks is landing a distribution deal! Yes, you heard me, a distribution deal! It's a win-win situation, if you're a winner at Southeast Regional and Jessica will do everything in her power to make your film sold. Great potential all around. You meet people who just want to help you succeed! You must submit to this film festival to experience what I have. Just do it!

  • Great festival. Very well put together, especially considering it's only in its 2nd year. Some great films were shown. The food was awesome. It gave filmmakers multiple ways to get exposure; for instance I won best live pitch for my screenplay, Loan Wolves.

  • Our team had a great time at this festival. Lots of very passionate local talent, films and networking opportunities. Great communication throughout the process. Nice location as well, but hopefully a larger venue for next time with more space to mingle.
