    We thank the for selecting our film “Daily Bread” into the festival. However, we never received laurels and never received any information regarding the festival at all. No festival schedule, no congratulatory e-mail, nothing.

  • This festival unlocked a lot of things for me. I waked away feeling accomplished as well as feeling like i knew what direction I wanted to go in as far as distribution. My film “Black Daddy: The Movie” was the inaugural winner of the Jeffrey Legitime Award for Purpose Driven Content. I highly recommend this festival.
