Overall Rating
  • It has been such a wonderful and great experience screening our bilingual film 'A Cycle' at Boulevard Film Festival. Matt and Amanda have been so great and wonderful at communication, it has been such a pleasure being in touch with them. The venue was great and we screened our film to a sold out audience followed by a compelling Q&A that led the audience to engage. It was great to meet other filmmakers and artists in New York. Amanda and Matt made it a very memorable and special event for our film A Cycle and I can't wait to submit further works to Boulevard Film Festival. I definitely recommend this festival to NYC filmmakers!

    This is a neat little festival full of interesting work in an unexpected setting in Queens, NYC. The directors of the festival, Amanda and Matt, really hit their stride this year and made many filmmakers happy.

  • Amanda and Matt were extremely nice, responsive and accommodating! It's a small festival, but you have the opportunity to meet NY based filmmakers which is a plus for potential future collaboration! Our screening was sold out, and the room was packed with cool people!

  • Boulevard was the first festival to pick up my film, and I'm happy it was. They were very mindful with regards to identifying filmmakers who represent the diverse spectrum of New York; in particular Queens. The films were all high quality and thoughtful. The panel and audience was amazing. And the venues were all quaint and perfect for this type of film festival. I'd recommend this festival to up and coming filmmakers who are looking for that personal touch from the curators.
