    A big thank you to you and the organisers at the film festival. The staff and yourself really made us feel welcome, we kind of looked at ourselves as outsiders as this was our first movie but never felt excluded in anyway. We were delighted just to be nominated never-mind actually winning something. It was amazing thing for us and our small town of Tredegar...What it did do was give the team here a real boast in confidence and we are looking forward to taking the award out to Poland and show the young people what was worth all the hard work

    This is a FANTASTIC festival. The Filmmaker festival of World Cinema have different events in London, Milan, Nice, Berlin, etc. and EACH of them are absolutely fantastic. They always make sure the film makers have access to all the films and each other. They encourage get together and really do a wonderful job of making sure each film maker is heard and has a chance to show their work.

    If you are going to enter any festival in Europe, this is the group to do it with. They also understand that a part of this is getting publicity and do a wonderful job of getting your information into a magazine to show to friends and relatives and investors.

    The only negative there is is their strength which is they hold the festival in a hotel with not the best screening rooms or sound. IF you go, understand that the showing is MOSTLY held for the film makers and don't expect a 50 foot tall screen. They are conference rooms, which actually works out wonderfully as you can view dozens of movies very easily.

    A wonderful considered festival run by a lovely team of professional film lovers. Great communication, lovely London venue. Thanks so much to Dan, Steve, Adam, Chloe & Roy. The magazine is really good and informative and the pop up banner service is worth every penny. I had a cracking screening which added to an already growing buzz! Five nominations & 2 wins! If I have any criticism for change it would be to try and involve a cinema in order to show films. The pop-up cinema is great (x 3 screening rooms for London) but a 'Filmmakers' festival should be able to show the films as the 'filmmaker' intended (don't let this deter though, the quality of film screenings is very good but this is a great festival and growing wildly and it deserves a theatre or two, maybe for the 'best feature, film' nominated entries? - Thanks team, looking forward to seeing you all again soon!
