  • I loved this!!!! We are all of our own worst Critic. Winning Best Indie Feature, Bested Actor in a Indie Film and Best Original Story made me almost lose it. Thank you so much for letting me share my passion, my art, and my message.

  • Wow! What an honour to be awarded with Best Experimental Film for my short film "The Clothes Wear You". This festival is brilliant for new international filmmakers trying to get some exposure for their work. Definitely worth the submission fee. Thanks to FilmCon Awards for choosing us and for this amazing opportunity. I will apply again and recommend this festival 100%! Great communication and great people.
