    My first year at this film festival, not as many people as I thought there would be, but LA had rained that weekend. A lot of fan films I wanted to see I finally got to watch, had a good amount of QnA time for our film Supermen: World War. Eugene is awesome and hopes that they keep doing this festival.

  • As a first-time script writer, and finalist in the 2019 awards, it was my honor to have been nominated and be asked to participate in the event.

    Eugene and the entire team from Azure Lorica did a great job of bringing together a diverse selection of passionate film makers from around the world. The festival is an inspiration to all film artists dedicated to characters and stories that touch us deeply.

    I encourage anyone who has a passion for Fan filmmaking to participate in future events.

    A perfect festival for first-time filmmakers and veterans of the craft alike. The organizers are very friendly and professional. The community around the Fan Film Awards are very welcoming. I would definitely recommend this contest to anyone with a passion project.

  • This was my first time with FanFilm Awards, and I was so pleased with the experience. Everyone was so welcoming and the atmosphere was amazing. And the awards proccess was so great. I got so much publicity when my script won, and made wonderful connections. I highly recommend this festival, not only because it's one of a kind, but because it supports a relevant cause. People of any fandom should definitely check this festival out.
