NOTE: This festival is still taking place each week despite the COVID-19 virus. All festival dates have been relegated to private screenings with the same Audience FEEDBACK videos made for the short films.

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.

    I would really recommend the platform as the way they conduct the festival is very good , also the fact that there’s a discussion on the film and that feedback is shared with the film makers is really inspiring

    I admit it was with some trepidation that I watched my video feedback to my movie. To my great relief I found all the comments were intelligent, perceptive, thoughtful and the people commenting heard the message I was trying to convey. They were also tactfully positive. Perhaps they realise that filmakers are artists, and respond much better to encouragement than critisicm. So yes, I have found this process very worthwhile. Thank you.

  • It was amazing to get the feedback of the audience and the organizing committee did a great job to hold private screenings given the current situation. The video is well-edited and I appreciate it so much. Definitely recommend!
