  • The guys from ProCo were very hands on. They met everyone at the theater and did a fantastic job of making the We Are Indie Horror Film Fest stand out at a festival that included 10 other festivals, no easy task. Brian and Joseph were awesome. I enjoyed being a part of the WAIHFF!

    A great idea being part of a Megafest. With enough festivals combined together, this could create a festival large enough to compete with Cannes or Sundance without the need for million dollar budgets and professional actors, allowing for real DIY films. I believe this is the future of short films with A.O.F. plans for a short films cable television channel.
