I am really happy with the audience feedback video I received.. First of all, because the audience could understand the feelings that I wanted to convey through my movie and second reason because my animation style also was praised. I am amazed and happy.

People sure do take things seriously and over analyze! What a great experience.

    Great ambitious festival, very friendly people. The feedback video I received of my film was wonderful. So enriching to get to hear people's reaction even though I couldn't attend the event. Thank you and I hope to be able to be a part of a future edition!

    This is what alot of filmmakers truly want, to get your film screened, reviewed by audience and director get interviewed. That's great.

    This is, by far, the most helpful festival a filmmaker could get into. The format (soliciting and recording audience feedback) is unlike any festival I've found. Supremely helpful insight. I didn't really know what to expect when I submitted, but I'm so glad I did. It's clear that Matthew (the man who runs it) cares about the films he curates and presents, and he knows how to get good comments from the audience. I highly recommend this festival!
