    The Psychedelic Film and Music Festival played host to what ended up being the world premiere of our flick UNDERNEATH: An Anthology Of Terror, and we wouldn't have had it any other way...we were honored to be part of this great festival! The Psychedelic Film & Music Festival definitely brought their A-Game forward, and it shows in everything they did to advance judging status to stellar correspondence - thumbs, way up! Keep up the solid work - John Nicol (Director of Underneath).

    People that I communicated with were very rude. I asked if I could send out a bigger file they said that's too much trouble and they could 'easily replace me'. They also put it on the creators to make sure a lot of people come to the festival. Overall bad experience and a waste of the money. Too bad because the overall vibe seemed very nice.

  • My how time flies! The filmmakers reception was fabulous. We did a QandA after my screening block that was very helpful. Long live the Psychedelic film and music festival!
