#TOFF - The Online Film Festival is a monthly international online event of short films, feature films and web series.

#TOFF is the first festival which specifically helps independent filmmakers to raise their visibility through the web. We do so by creating and taking care of your communication on line, we create a web page of your film and promote it through social media.

    An experience that does not offer anything other than a laurel. Even if the film is submitted you never get informed about anything. I don't even know if anyone saw my film because personally I could not see others' films due to password and privacy.

    I was very disappointed with my experience. I was never notified about my listing. Was never notified about winners. I was curious if my film was ever listed at all, and I tried locating it, and didn't find neither my film, or anyone else's that might've been in the running for the timeframe suggested. Perhaps it was user error on my part? I'm certainly one to take responsibility for user error. But I suspect that I recognized everything that I needed to know and understand.
