There is an episode about this festival in our archives as we talk about the audience and all the great films we showcased at this event.
The theme of the August 2018 FEMALE FEEDBACK Film Festival in Toronto was “Moving on from the past”.
Each film was about a character that had to move forward from their past nostalgias, comfortabilities, mistakes, and venture onward to the future.
Another sold out Female Festival Event. What started out a festival that would to 2-3 events each in Toronto & Los Angeles, has now turned to a monthly festival in Toronto and a four times a year festival in Los Angeles. There are simply too many great shorts made by females today that we must show them. Of course it helps that the audience keeps showing up too. So it’s a win/win for everyone.
The team of Kierton Drier & Mary Cox are superb. They keep turning out great event after great event.
See you at the festivals.

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.
