The honorable board of judges give you honest and valuable feedback

I cannot recommend The IndieFEST Film Awards too highly–particularly for filmmakers who have created something that is out of the box, because IndieFEST loves original, edgy, risky films that defy the mainstream. And here’s a bonus. As a fellow filmmaker I know how expensive it is to attend film festivals throughout the world. I love this fest because it’s an online experience. All you have to do is submit your film via FilmFreeway and the good people at the IndieFEST will do the rest. The honorable board of judges will dedicate their undivided attention to your film and will give you honest and valuable feedback. And best of all for us starving artists, no airfare, no hotel costs or travel expenses. You don’t want to miss this fest!

Impressed with the quality of the trophy

The trophy was a nice touch. Something to immortalize my life long pursuit. I’ll never forget the day I brought home the trophy and showed it off to my friends and family.  It was a special day for me. Everyone was so proud of my accomplishment and impressed with the quality of the trophy. They told me that all my hard was finally starting to pay off. Hopefully this will be the first of many awards I’ll be receiving as my skills grow as a film maker and an animator.

A competitive festival for the veteran filmmakers

I needed a competitive festival for the veteran film makers, that is capable of granting credibility. Which also have to have an opened mind to appreciate an artistic film that is not a main stream creation. I found myself at home in The IndieFest Film Awards. Heavenly landing amongst great staff and appreciative judges. Highly recommended.
