This film fest was created to celebrate genre films of all kinds that tend not to have too many outlets on the festival circuit. Being filmmakers ourselves, we know the work that goes into making a film so our entry fees are low and we have a lot of rewards to give out. We are a film fest made by and for filmmakers.

Overall Rating

    I have conflicting feelings about this festival. The films are exciting, creative, and unique and the few people who attended were wonderfully supportive and friendly. I was disappointed with the venue (i.e. hardly any time to meet fellow filmmakers, distracting waiters during screening, forced to buy food/dinner). Also, intermission music was playing over the first two minutes of my movie before I had to ask the projectionist and festival director to turn it off. While this festival proudly celebrates independent and unusual/innovative filmmaking, its lack of professionalism makes it not really worth it for non-local people to attend.

    This was my second time at the festival. Edward is a gracious host and easy to work with. The festival is quaint but well attended AND the fees are extremely much that I just submitted films for the third time. Thank you Edward!

    Oh how I wish I could've attended this event! The festival director communicated with me in every possible way on how my short film could be presented & viewed in the best conditions. Much thanks!

    A fun sometimes freakish film fest with a lot of promising talent!
