    Kingdomwood is an amazing festival. The venue was beautiful and ultra accommodating. I love that I was able to hold a Q&A after my little film. I met so many amazing people.

    Really had an amazing experience at Kingdomwood. It was at their film festival that I actually met the composer for our current short film! And it was precisely because of Kingdomwood that we were inspired to start working ASAP on our next project.

    The team at Kingdomwood truly celebrates excellence and does all it can to encourage filmmakers to better their craft. You will be pleased with their offerings and the genuine Christian spirit fostered through their festival. Each time I have attended the festival, I've grown, connected with many new friends and associates in the business, and been stretched to reach for higher goals. Thank you Kingdomwood for answering the call God placed on you all to highlight and support Christian and family media!
