    We had a great experience with the Idaho Halloween and Horror Film Festival Awards! Excellent communication, they even sent us a video of the online introduction to our movie! My only regret is that we were unable to attend a live event. Looking forward to submitting again!

  • This was a great festival with a lot to offer! Those I spoke to were friendly and efficient, I'm looking forward to more festivals.
    Deadlines and schedules were timely and well maintained.
    They were even willing to mail my award to me.
    Thank you for the opportunity!

  • It was a great festival for being the first year. Well organized and lots of fun. I will go next year even if I don’t have a film in the event.
