    Being selected by Direct Monthly Online Film Festival has been wonderful - not only have we found new audiences for our film but they couldn't have been more pleasant and clear in all communications. I will definitely apply to DMOFF Fest again.

    Loved this film fest, was honored to not only be selected, but for our film, Love at the End of Earth, to win the Audience Choice Award and the Best Editor Award.

    Only reason I gave it a 4 for networking is because it's online, they were great. Sent laurels and certificates and communicated better than most, awesome film fest and highly recommend it!!!
