Overall Rating
  • It is a great honor for us to win the best student film award with my film 'Let's Talk' at this nice festival.
    Since we were unable to attend, the organizers made sure to take pictures for us from the intimate screening and share the experience with us from afar.
    Thank you!

    Offshore Film Festival was such a pleasure to be a part of. The coordinators were extremely communicative and very willing to accommodate my needs as a filmmaker. The amount of art & culture at the festival blew me away, along with the sponsorship and general vibe of the crowd. If you're looking for a great festival to be part of, this is it.
