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 October 2018 LA FEEDBACK Film Festival in Toronto was “I am who I am”.

First half – Best of FEMALE Directed Short Film Dramaa
2nd half – Best of EXPERIMENTAL Short Films.

The Female Festival is becoming the FEEDBACK Festival’s showcase festival. It’s our most popular festival, and arguably the festival that garners the best films submitted. We are honored to how be showcasing at least one Female Festival a month in either Los Angeles or our Toronto events.

This was the first time we showcased our Experimental Festival in Los Angeles. A popular event in Toronto, we wanted to see how the LA audience took to these purely original films. They seemed to really like it so we will showcase a full Experimental Festival at our February 2019 event.

Great night all around.

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.
