Female Film Festival Testimonial – August 25 2018

Screenwriter Mary C. Ferrara (RED SHIRT)

A Film Freeway Preferred Festival:

I liked the fact that it was trying to promote female talent, which is so important these days. Yes, I hope too there will be no need for festivals aimed at promoting work of female filmmakers. That eventually there will be a bigger percentage of female filmmakers that are on the scene and get the attention they deserve from all festivals. I LOVED your feedback, it helped me to flesh things out more, it really made sense.

Female Film Festival Testimonial – August 22 2018

I think it’s crucial to have actors read your work after hearing the words in your own head for so long. I love the focus FFFF places on women creators and storytellers.

The feedback from the festival was on point and in depth. I was given notes while working on a new draft and was pleased that the comments were in line with the changes I was making or had made.
