I loved the idea of actors reading my story. Apart from the potential publicity, this seemed like such a privilege. And I really appreciated the feedback. It was encouraging, but also spot-on as far as weaknesses.

Seeing the people’s reactions and comments on the film from the audience was a great experience for me and the rest of the crew and cast. I wish more festivals had an event like this as it is the very core of filmmaking. It made the screening of my film at your festival (and the awards) really special and real.
- Director John Hellberg "Mousse" short film
The feedback notes taught me, analysis after analysis, how to trim the fat and think organically, and helped me understand that in a good script “less means more”.
- Alexandre Kounde, TV Pilot "No Love Doves"
This is a very good idea ! I really like the initial reactions to the audience because I saw different kind of reactions. That’s why I made this film to provide various emotions and feelings to the audience.
– Director Karim Quaret, "Lapsus" short film
The FEEDBACK Festival has a reputation for providing on-the-money professional feedback for each submission. I like to enter every project I do in WILDsound because it is a great barometer for comparing your work to what is hot in the industry.
- Michael Miceli, Feature Screenplay "BESA"
It’s a little surreal. It’s amazing that people in Toronto got to see our little film! And I was surprised about the comments. Often people in Q & A sessions are only interested in single aspects about the films they’ve watched. But your audience analyzed our short on so many levels, that I was blown away!
- Director Florian Puchert, "Wrong Place, Wrong Crime" short film
