    I’m grateful for the opportunity to participate in this event. The organiser is so friendly and patient, the feedback part is a great experience. In times where it all comes to a link to stream to, this event gives a good answer. The festival is monthly and not yearly. Thanks again for everything!!! ❤️ Einav namer yelin

    Very pleased with this event. They did a fantastic job from review of the script to the table read. High quality all around and that makes the entry well worth the effort. I highly recommended this one!

    Thank you Family Festival!!!

    We are London-based film-makers and we made our first short film 'Tea & Coffee' last year which we submitted to the Festival and this was an absolutely amazing experience! They not only accepted our short in to the Festival for Drama and Family, but also informed us that Tea & Coffee had been accepted for the Feedback Festival, where we get a chance to hear live audience feedback after a screening of our short.

    This was al incredibly well organised, with regular communication from the respective Festival teams and we were delighted to receive a video of the live audience feedback yesterday, as we could not travel to Toronto for this.

    Thank you so much, this has been such a wonderful and life-changing experience!
