What our filmmakers are saying
No pretentiousness, just everyone gathering and becoming friends, thus forging relationships for a lifetime. I’ve been lucky to attend a lot of festivals in my career, but these festivals are my favorite!
It is truly something special and every filmmaker should experience this on some level. The people behind-the-scenes who made me feel at home made it one of the greatest experiences and trips of my life.
The staff bends over backwards to make everyone feel welcome and I honestly believe that many of the advances I have made in my career have been as a direct result of my participation in these festivals.
This was my first festival ever, so I didn’t have anything else to compare it to, but over all I had a fantastic time , between making new contacts and dealing with the organizers, which was a delightful experience.
As a New Yorker, I’m not easily impressed, but this WAS an impressive and unforgettable experience! Highly recommend.
From the moment I arrived at the festival I could see that the team were doing something special. They set up an amazing week that makes the filmmaker feel very welcome and part of a new family.
Thanks to my win, I assured funding on my unproduced script – an unattainable feat without the buzz created by the festival. Even a nomination creates enough opportunity to propel your projects forward.
This is one of the best festival experiences I have had. The whole event is very well managed and the entire staff is very professional. The array of discussion panels proved informative and valuable. The location and accommodations for the event are excellent. Additionally, there are many international networking opportunities . This is a festival that truly loves film and filmmakers!
It is mind boggling to me how such a small staff of ten people present an astonishingly professional film festival. Their tireless efforts before each event and during are beyond admirable. They bring filmmakers from all over the world together in a hugely positive environment where even an introvert will find him or herself contributing eagerly to many discussions re all things film. For any aspiring filmmaker reading this I strongly encourage to submit and attend regardless of what capacity you find yourself in, unproduced scripts, documentary etc.
We played at this festival last year, and they were an absolute dream! They are good at what they do and completely upstanding. They respond to requests in a very timely manner and actually seem to love putting on this festival. They are a welcome change from many of the fly by night fests out there that make a ton of mistakes. I can’t recommend them enough. They were/are dynamite.
Great festival with a top-notch staff! We were made to feel welcome from the moment we were notified of our acceptance into the London festivities
Terrific London festival – amazing how many countries were represented – with meant GREAT networking. Thank you to the whole team. And we’ll definitely be submitting to the next one (Nice, South of France).
When I attended the festival in London, I had a great time. I met so many great filmmakers, directors, actors , it was truly an amazing experience you do not want to miss.
