    I had a great experience!!! The Film Collective is such a great event. It helps filmmakers from around the world to display their work in front of each other, openly discuss their personal journey through out the process and network with one another. Thank you for opening this up to us and allowing us to showcase our work and support each other.

    The overall environment is fantastic. I could instantly tell I was in a room full of people who all had a love for indie film the moment I entered the venue. The organizers are very passionate about each film they select and are so eager to provide a voice to those who want to exhibit their art. If you've made a short film lately, you have no reason not to submit. I've already entered again and can't wait to find out if I get to go back!
