Watch the Audience FEEDBACK Video for each film:
The LGBT JUNE 2017 FEEDBACK Film Festival gave our audiences simply the best of short movies from this community.
The theme of the festival was “BEING YOURSELF”.
Every film showcased was about a character(s) just needing to be who they are in order to be fulfilled in this crazy world.
The first ever LGBT FEEDBACK Film Festival was a success. Of course anytime you hit a new venture, there is always things to take away from and do better next time out. Bottomline, we want to make sure we have more of a LGBT dominated audience making comments for the filmmakers.
This festival got started in July 2016 to prepare for the 2017 season and beyond. We hired strickly people in the community to program the films and read/grade the scripts.
Alan Flanagan, based in London, UK, was the main programmer for the June 2017 Festival. He has worked for WILDsound on and off since 209 and was the driving force to begin the LGBT FEEDBACK Film Festival.
You always know you had a great festival when all the films receive multiple votes for BEST FILM of the night from the audience. WAJOOD was the winner, but by the slimmest of margins.
We are so proud of this festival so far. We can’t wait until the next one in the fall.
See you at the festivals.
