    THIS IS the BEST Festival for your Fan Film!
    Even if you are not attending due tu schedule problems you get an audience review video of your screening that helps improving your way of filmmaking.

    Overall the FFA was a great time. It's a newer fest so they are still working out some kinks. But Eugene and company have their hearts in the right place and truly care about the filmmakers and their films. They are truly fans. I wish them the best of luck as I know the fest will continue to increase in popularity.

    I don't have much experience with film festivals, as this was my first, but the opportunity provided by the Fan Film Awards is unique in the film community, as they are the only game in town when it comes to films and scripts based on fan fiction.
    I was fortunate enough to win "best script" for stand alone scripts, at the 2015 festival, and it has been the most joyful and uplifting experience I have had in a long time.
    As of July 2016, I am working with Eugene to produce a table reading of my script later this year.
    The process has taught me a lot and the amount of dedication Eugene has towards facilitating the festival and producing the screenings is more than I could have ever imagined from a smaller festival such as the Fan Film Awards.
