Read testimonials from filmmakers and writers who have shared their work with the festival.
I loved it. It was a totally new experience for me. I’ve obviously shown the film to a lot of friends and people I meet, and it is great to see their reaction as they watch the film. But having people who know about film talk about and comment on your work is something very different. The fact that the audience picked up on some of the small details about the characters & story line gives me a renewed devotion to finish up the series.
– Matt Burniston, Filmmaker “The Mega Plush”
For me it was really great to get response from the audience. I have worked hard to finish the project. And i loved the way the audience is trying to find their answer of meaning that is captured in the film. I want to Thank you for showcasing my film. The audience feedback video was awesome.
– Jan-Willem de Kraaij, Filmmaker “La Commedia”
I am really happy with the audience feedback video I received.. First of all, because the audience could understand the feelings that I wanted to convey through my movie and second reason because my animation style also was praised. I am amazed and happy.
– Camila Moreira Marques, Filmmaker “Fat”
A friend of mine who just moved to L.A. from Brooklyn read our script and recommend we enter it. The coverage and feedback were right-on and helped us tighten up and improve things after staring at it for so many months.
– Travis McMaster & Tony Interdonato, Writers “Bob’s Burgers”
I was quite nervous at the beginning (watching the audience feedback of my film), but people seemed to react very positively so it really was a great experience.
– Pepe Gomez, Filmmaker “Knocked Down”
It made me so happy to watch the feedback of my film. I wish I could have been there. I love people who are open minded and ready to see with their heart. And I love cinema. As most of the people there love movies too.
– Laura Lehmus, Filmmaker “Alienation”
I was mainly trying to find feedback on my script. After leaving college, I suddenly found myself in a void where I could no longer find critiques from peers. This festival felt like a great opportunity to find a professional critique, especially with the live table-read. Rarely does a screenwriter have a chance to hear their script performed live by actors.
– Christiaan Alexander Kutlik, Writer “Vincent Locke: Villain-at-Law”
It was very cool. The audience was amazing. It was exactly the kind of reactions we were expecting when we were making the film. Thank you again !
– Filmmaking Team of the film “Merkur”
Thank you very much for your notes! They are spot-on. I agree that the story should probably focus more on Peter’s dilemma. If it ties in with Phuc’s heroin operation though, I’d need to walk that fine line of developing the subplots enough without overpowering the main story.
– David Chan, Writer “Family Guy”
I was very happy my movie sold very well about what I wanted to say, and the audience totally get it. It made me believe I have found my “ghost toy” which is animation to talk to people . Also thank you very much for showing these feedback to me.
– Tingting Liu, Filmmaker “Being”
I wanted to enter my Rick and Morty script in a couple contests, and I was intrigued by the FEEDBACK Festival’s table read concept. It set it apart from the other contests.
– Michael Kellner, Writer “Rick & Morty”
Watching the reactions of (German Shepherd) at WILDsound…filmmaking does not become more meaningful than that. When your film reaches and audience that respond in such way, it´s pure joy.
– Nils Bergendal, Filmmaker “German Shepherd”
I thought it was great. I never have a chance to record audience comment, so I’m very happy that people from Toronto gave me such single-hearted comments.
