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

The theme of the festival was “TAKING RISKS”.

Every film showcased was about a setting where a character takes a big risk to acheive what they desire.

NOTE: Our 5th Female Director’s festival!

The Female FEEDBACK Film Festival has been nothing short of incredible. We have received so many amazing short films and screenplays from talented artists from all over the world, that we are planning to do a FEMALE FEEDBACK FESTIVAL every single month starting in 2019.

This festival truly gives us the best new talent in the world today. A short film shown at this festival will be from a director who is destined to have a stellar career in this industry.

This festival also gives the audience a chance to watch a diverse lineup of films each month. This month alone there was an Animation, Fantasy, Comedy, Drama, Family, and Musical Romance short film in the lineup. No wonder this festival sells out faster than any other FEEDBACK Film Festival we do in Toronto & Los Angeles.

This festival is really about the team who make it happen, especially our main programmers Mary Cox & Kierston Drier.

See you at the festivals in 2017 and beyond.
