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

The theme of the festival was “SELF DISCOVERY”.

Every film showcased was about a setting where a character finds out who they are deep inside of themselves.

NOTE: Our 4th Female Director’s festival!

The Female FEEDBACK Film Festival has been an incredible learning experience. The success it has acheived so far in less than a year and four festival nights (3 in Toronto. 1 in Los Angeles) has been nothing short of amazing. The quality of films presented is top notch.

There will be one more Female Festival in 2017 occuring and 6 festivals set for 2018 in Toronto & Los Angeles.

I really have nothing to do with this festival. I don’t program a single film. I don’t moderate. I don’t program any of the accepted screenplays. My job is to simply make sure the excellent team (lead by Kierston Drier and Amanda Lomonaco) have a cinema and audience to showcase the accepted works.

The amazing succcess of Kierston and Amanda’s programming of this festival can’t be overlooked.

See you at the festivals in 2017 and beyond.
