FEMALE FEEDBACK FILM FESTIVAL – Highlights of the Thursday December 22, 2016 Event

The first ever FEMALE DECEMBER 2016 FEEDBACK Film Festival (FFFF) was a great success. The sold out crowd loved the diversity of 6 films from 6 different countries in 6 genres all directed by a female.

The theme of the festival was “Inner Struggles”.

This was definitely a night of firsts as this was also the debut of Kierston Drier as moderator. This is the first of many for the reviewer/festival programmer and she couldn’t have been more exceptional, receiving rave reviews from the audience afterwards.

NOTE: The Female FEEDBACK Film Festival (FFFF) was such a success, we plan on coming back every 3-4 months and showcasing the festival in Toronto, Los Angeles, and New York City.

This was also a rare festival when all 6 films received multiple votes for “Best Overall Film.”

It’s always interesting chatting with the audience members at the break and after the festival. You hear such unique perspectives of the films and their reactions to the audience’s comments.

When I was a kid I loved going to the movies. I used to think that it all depended what seat you took in the cinema as to what movie you saw. I thought that every person watched a different movie. It was soon after when I realized that we all indeed were watching the same film. But then as I grew into an adult (and starting running this festival) is when I realized that I was right all along when I was a toddler – we were all watching our own movie.

And that is what this festival is all about. It’s an audience FEEDBACK Festival where we do all experience something unique and different…and we all are watching a different film than the person sitting next to us. – Matthew Toffolo
