I am really happy with the audience feedback video I received.. First of all, because the audience could understand the feelings that I wanted to convey through my movie and second reason because my animation style also was praised. I am amazed and happy.

NOTE: This festival is still taking place each week. All festival dates have been relegated to private screenings with the same Audience FEEDBACK videos made for the short films, and recorded script readings performed by professional actors for the screenplays. This is our way of showing community over distance so everyone around the world can experience our Audience Feedback videos.

Here what was some of the filmmakers at the last 5min. or less film festival had to say about their experience:

I was very excited that my film had the opportunity to be seen by this audience. Interesting observations though by a very intelligent audience.
- Emy Tzavra-Bulloch (MINOTAUR)

People sure do take things seriously and over analyze! What a great experience.
- Scott McDermott (Steadi-Kid. Film went viral. Google "Steadi-Kid" and watch)

I was quite nervous at the beginning (watching the audience feedback of my film), but people seemed to react very positively so it really was a great experience.
- Pepe Gomez (KNOCKED DOWN)

    If you are thinking about submitting your short film to this festival, stop thinking and just DO IT! As a first time filmmaker, this has been my favorite festival experience so far. Reason #1: the audience feedback video is something I will treasure always (smart, experienced viewers given generous, supportive comments = amazing). Reason #2: Doing the podcast with Matthew forced me to step back and decide what I wanted to share about MAKING the film--it was a great experience. Reason #3: After the podcast, Matthew gave me advice on how to update my page (director's bio, project info, etc) so it would look better / more marketable. SUPER helpful!!

    FUMFSF fills a hole I felt in every festival I experienced. Most of the time, filmmakers can't attend fests and have no idea how the screening of their movie went even if they have finally been awarded. But here comes the kicker with this fest: the feedback part where viewers tape their thought about your movie and sincerely it was a blast for me. It turned an event kind of hazy cos thousands miles away from where I live to a real experience with real faces. Bravo !
