The FEMALE NOVEMBER 2017 FEEDBACK Film Festival gave our audiences the best NEW films by women directors from around the world.

The theme of the festival was “TAKING RISKS”.

Every film showcased was about a setting where a character takes a big risk to acheive what they desire.

NOTE: Our 5th Female Director’s festival!

The Female FEEDBACK Film Festival has been nothing short of incredible. We have received so many amazing short films and screenplays from talented artists from all over the world, that we are planning to do a FEMALE FEEDBACK FESTIVAL every single month starting in 2019.

This festival truly gives us the best new talent in the world today. A short film shown at this festival will be from a director who is destined to have a stellar career in this industry.

This festival also gives the audience a chance to watch a diverse lineup of films each month. This month alone there was an Animation, Fantasy, Comedy, Drama, Family, and Musical Romance short film in the lineup. No wonder this festival sells out faster than any other FEEDBACK Film Festival we do in Toronto & Los Angeles.

This festival is really about the team who make it happen, especially our main programmers Mary Cox & Kierston Drier.

See you at the festivals in 2017 and beyond.

The irony of this festival is that its goal is to not be around in 5 years time. To eventually not be relevant because there is zero need to have a festival geared for female talent and female stories because the stories presented in Hollywood and around the world are a balanced showcase of the human experience from both sexes. Our goal is to achieve a lot of success and then fold into oblivion simply because there is no need for this festival. This festival was created by the FEEDBACK Film & Writing Festival as a simple reaction to a strong need to showcase female talent from around the world in a more profound way. When putting together the weekly festival, the administration noticed a lack of a female presence in the stories being shown at the festival. A classic example and analogy to the frustration is how the festival noticed that even the smaller roles in a screenplay were written for a man to play. There was zero reason for this in many stories. How a police officer, or a political campaign manager, for example with 3-4 lines in a screenplay was a "HE" character. Why? And these are the screenplays written by the winners! The talented one who have obtained agents and have began/beginning their careers as a writer.
