Female Film Festival Testimonial – April 28 2020

Premila Puri

We were honoured to be nominated at TOFFFF and then to pick up the Best performances award was truly magical. Thank you TOFFF for this win and the recognition that such an award bestows. We’ve been really impressed at the lengths the festival has gone to bring films the maximum exposure via their interview segment and the audience reaction video. This is so very needed for young filmmakers esp making their debut. A massive kudos to the team for being fantastically communicative! I look forward to submitting more films and this time attending the festival too!! Thanks for hosting a brilliant festival!

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.
