Fantasy/Sci-Fi Festival Testimonial – May 18 2020

Filmmaker Sophie Black (SONGBIRD)

We’re always a bit nervous when people watch our films, because we never know how they are going to react. We always hope that they’ll like it. But my crew and I were really grateful for the kind of words of your audience, and we’re so glad that they enjoyed watching the film. Songbird’s music has been popular throughout its festival run (it won two awards before you kindly gave the film ‘Best Music’), so we were half expecting that your audience would enjoy that element of the film, but we were really touched by their comments about the film’s editing and its general aura as well.

Sci-Fi/Fantasy Testimonial – January 20 2019

Wow, thank you! I’m really impressed that you guys took on performing the script; it’s so visual I didn’t think it would work like that but you’ve shown that it can. Hats off to your actors and especially Hugh Ritchie for narrating.

Great communication and fantastic feedback. Well worth entering. The video feedback we received for our short film “Uncle Griot” was insightful and very useful in the development of the feature we’re making from it. Would enter again. Highly recommend.

Sci-Fi/Fantasy Festival Testimonial – October 25 2018

Screenwriter Colleen Asbury (The Dance of the Desert Mermaids)

I admit that I saw the word “Fantasy” and thought, “AHA!” I was thrilled because I thought that finally people who loved fantasy and visuals as much as I did could take a look at it and give me feedback. I entered three short screenplays and the feedback I received from these folks was incredible. It felt like this was the first time that anyone had really, truly READ the Desert Mermaids, taken it in, and then gave real, honest, mind-blowing feedback to me. The feedback on the other two screenplays was just as good, though whomever read one of them really didn’t “get” it, but their insights were still incredible and I am very grateful. I am beyond thrilled that knowledgeable, passionate, literate people at this festival read my stuff and gave such insightful feedback. This is a dream come true.

Sci-Fi/Fantasy Festival Testimonial – August 25 2018

Michael Willer (THE VOLUNTEER)

I got giddy. I was actually in the room at the screening and got to listen firsthand to people’s feedback and it blew me away. The word “perfect” was thrown around a couple times, which just wows me. I’m so proud of our little film. We were a tiny team, just 4 of us on set, and just me in post-production. I couldn’t be happier with the reception.

I had a great experience with this festival. The programmers are friendly and smart- fun to engage with about your film. The feedback video is a really fun way to get a different kind of response to your film.
