This festival is unlike any other that I have been a part of. I was unable to attend but the follow up has been incredible. The audience feedback video is a wonderful window into the views of the audience and the filmmaker interview is a great opportunity to talk about the details behind making the film. Thank you for all you do for dance film!

Great opportunity for every filmmaker to get an honest and undisturbed feedback about their projects. Fantastic venue (one in downtown Toronto), and Matthew Toffolo (the MC and moderator) was always on point. He truly cares about the filmmaker and understands how to talk to the audience. Overall a wonderful experience, and I had an amazing time in Canada.

Matthew and the team at the festival were great to work with. We were thrilled to be a part of it and honored to receive the Best Cinematography Award. Since we were not able to attend, it was great to receive the video of the audience’s feedback. This is a wonderful festival!

Filmmaker Jenny Ni (ECLOSION)

Although I’m used to receiving comments from my friends about the work I’ve done so far. Seeing them on screen is a whole another experience. Especially knowing the viewers are watching my film from another city, it made me excited but also nervous. Excited in a way that I’m glad I’m able to deliver my message to a boarder audience group. Nervous because this is the first time that my film is being screened in a downtown theatre.

Filmmaker Sophia Stoller (SCREAMING SHAPES)

It was great to hear that it resonated with people and to hear people’s impressions. We were actually able to attend the festival the night our film was screened, so we also got feel the energy in the theater as people were watching it, which was exciting.
