    A great festival that included some of the best content I’ve ever seen in a festival. It was an honor to be included alongside such amazing work. Top notch event with an amazing director and hostess in Susan Johnston. The communication was outstanding and execution was flawless. Thank you for having us!

    Fabulous festival! Thank you for nominating my pop track “Save The Day” for Best Song (Music Only category). So many creative entries, each deserving to be recognized. This is my first time to join their festival and I am very pleased with the results. Thank you for giving us independent songwriters a platform for our music to be heard. Power to New Media!

      This is such a generous festival! And one that is trailblazing in its embrace of multiple different formats, media, and approaches to storytelling. A wonderfully lively atmosphere accompanies the festival, and this was palpable even in virtual form, due to the pandemic necessitating both online and in-person attendance. I’m very grateful to have been a part of this festival – a terrific, affirming experience.

      Honoured to have been nominated with my feature screenplay ‘The Split’ at such a prestigious film Festival. I loved hooking up with Susan and fellow nominees at the festival, live. Susan is a natural connector of people; engaged and hospitable to all she meets. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to further my reach with my dear-to-my-heart project.

  • Martina Webster

    It was our first time at this film festival and we enjoyed the networking and the staff very much. It was such a great honor for our film Hashtag Blessed to win Best Faith and family feature amongst so many outstanding entries.
