    Our short film was selected at this festival but we didn't get any communication from the organisers.
    We don't know if our film screened or not.

    Ma'am,

    We thrive on finding slots for all our submissions to be screened.
    All we can do is send emails to all the selected films. I am sorry you felt we did not communicate good enough.

  • Martina Webster

    Our feature was accepted as an official screening, we got notice the night before, no way to travel and attend, phone calls where not returned nor were emails. After contacting filmfreeway to find out. we finally got an email 4 days after the event stating they had a change of venue. We could not have shown our feature as it is not downloadable, and as I did not have any communication from them, I could not supply them with a link. Very strange indeed.

    Matina,

    Why would you send your film to a film festival without a downloadable link? I am so sorry you had a bad experience. We really work hard to give attention to all our participants.
