This festival went above and beyond to deliver even during the COVID-19 pandemic. Though the LA Live screening was changed to private screenings, I still received a long feedback video that included thoughtful and detailed critiques from a diverse array of people. My cast and crew is super excited as well, as every department got a mention in the video! If you want to know what real film enthusiasts think of your film beyond your inner circle, submit here! Thank you to everyone who participated in the video.
A Film Freeway Preferred Festival:
The FEEDBACK Female Film Festival (FFFF) was created for women filmmakers and screenwriters. The goal is to showcased the best of female talent in film & TV from around the world.
Film Festival takes place six times a year!
Screenplay Festival takes place every single month.
Festival takes place at the Regal L.A. LIVE Cinemas in downtown Los Angeles, and the Carlton Cinemas in downtown Toronto.
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.
