  • West Sound is a professionally-run film festival that truly values cinema and filmmakers. Our whole team was so happy to be there and were made to feel like special guests by festival director Amy Camp and all of the incredible staff and volunteers. We arrived in Bremerton and the first thing we saw at check in was a huge poster for our film! That made us feel so good. The venues are gorgeous, communication was excellent, attendance was great, pre-festival promotion was on point, the karaoke after party was a blast, networking was incredible... Everything 100% perfect. Thank you so much, West Sound, for selecting our film, Fantasy A Gets a Mattress!!

    West Sound was an amazing festival experience. Everything was streamlined so well! I truly felt like a guest being invited to a big party. 100% would return if they accepted another one of my films in the future!
