    Thank you so much Jesse and Red Slate! It was wonderful to have you and loved your submissions. Congrats on your win and see you next year!

  • I have no basis for rating this festival in the categories of hospitality and networking, but I do not want an absence of stars to negatively affect the festival so I will give it 5 stars and err on the side of the positive rather than the negative. . It was an honor for my documentary, Richard Wilbur: Keeping the Difficult Balance, to be selected to compete in this worthy festival. Thanks.

    The Veritas Film Festival promotes films that are truthful in expression and beauty. We are honored that our feature documentary, A Castle in Brooklyn, King Arthur is an official selection of a festival with such a mission statement. It means that the work is understood. Thank you.

    Thank you so much Tyler for the kind review. We loved your documentary. We look forward to viewing your future submissions. Take care.

  • We have had a very positive experience with Veritas FF from submission through official selection, and beyond - despite the unfortunate news about the festival postponement, due to Covid-19. Veritas FF clearly cares about fostering quality content, and values its filmmakers and audience with dignity and respect. Communication was wonderful, and everything was professionally handled. Even the "livestream festival" announcement was well-done and down-to-earth - indicative of the heart, focus and professionalism behind this festival. The organization, branding, venue and coordinating team are all top-notch - giving me confidence as a filmmaker and content creator that our work is in excellent hands. (One visit to the Veritas website says it all!) The leadership also has a pulse on the film industry, actual independent filmmaking and event planning - which makes everything smooth, pleasant and genuinely validating for us as filmmakers. We absolutely support Veritas Film Festival, and are eager to submit to Veritas Film Festival again in the future. Highly recommended!
