  • We were so excited when we were notified that we were an award winner and selected for the Best Student Film category at this festival! Unfortunately, when one of our group members went to the festival, our film wasn't even screened, meanwhile nominations were screened. We wish the organizers had communicated this to us more clearly since the trip to the festival was expensive (we're based in Toronto, ON). While the festival was nicely organized, well executed, and had wonderful staff members (thank you to the staff member who was taking names, you're awesome), the networking was awkward and a lot of people just ignored us when trying to start a conversation (perhaps it was because we're just animation students). We would recommend this festival to anyone doing live action, but if you're submitting an animation film, maybe save it for another festival. Overall, we don't blame our experience on the festival or any individual, and we're thankful nonetheless for the invitation and award.

    Response from festival:

    Thank you for your honest feedback. Each year we run into the issue of trying to communicate through Filmfreeway and our Website, that not all films are being screened, even if nominated.

    Given part of our issue is the amount of screening time available, we decided to have a larger screening format that will allow more films to be screened over the course of the day. I am truly sorry your film was not screened as hoped, and you were not well received. We posted photos, I would love to know which ones you were, and I do hope to change the relationship to more positive. I encourage you to send a film again, and bring it to my attention.

    Keep making projects, you are still a winner.

  • Lights, cameras, the red carpet! Amazing movies, beautiful people and an incredible host, Danny Malin. Thank you for all the nominations and awarding Best Cinematography to our feature, Scarpedicemente. This was one of the most intimate festival we have attended!
