This was one of the most beneficial and rewarding film festivals I’ve ever been lucky enough to be a part of! While I unfortunately wasn’t able to attend because I was living so far away, I was still able to view my feedback, which is seriously amazing and felt incredible. Everyone submitting to festivals sometimes feels like a tiny invisible fish in a vast ocean of talented filmmakers, but this festival reminded me that while competition is fierce, people always have genuine reactions to your art! (And that’s the whole point of filmmaking isn’t it?)
I recommend this festival to any and all women making films. Getting feedback on your work is more valuable than any statue or reward.

Thanks for an amazing experience and to all who commented on my work!

Great festival! Organizers were prompt to respond, not to mention very accommodating, kind, and polite. The moderator not only did her research on the various films being showcased, but was super upbeat, positive, warm, affirming, and inquisitive. When a particular audience member was being abrasive and rude in front of the whole theater, the moderator did not lose her cool for a second and maintained a sense of total professionalism throughout. She really did her best to honor the “stars” of the evening—us, the audience. Overall I really enjoyed myself and felt so honored to have my film screened here. The fact that the event was held at the Regal Live Cinemas in Downtown LA was nothing to sneeze at either!

I was a winner for the FIRST SCENE stage reading for my movie While The Village Sleeps. This was my first time getting a prize like this one and I’ve gotta say that this was pretty useful to my writing! They kept a video on YouTube that I still use a reference to show people how my opening scene “sound like”. Their response rate is very fast and they are very friendly and accomodating. I also attending the Festival a few times at the Regal Cinemas in LA. Great ambiance! Cool to see that everyone in the audience is so respectful of the movies that are showing on every night, and feedback is always encouraged at the end of each film block. This is definitely a festival that I would recommend to both filmmakers and screenwriters as there are great perks for both sides. Definitely re-submitting for my other screenplays and possibly a movie I made. Go check it out! You won’t be disappointed.

From director Lisa Baron & Writer/Actor Malin Barr (HEDDA NEEDS HELP)

It was really great to receive feedback, especially since people seemed to enjoy the film! Of course, that feels good. It was also really rewarding to hear that the audience liked Hedda and was on her side though her motives and actions, because our biggest note in our first draft was creating a more likeable character, given the dark nature of our plot. After hearing the feedback, it feels like we accomplished that goal!
