THRILLER Festival Testimonial – March 22 2019

Thriller/Suspense Film and Writing Festival

Matthew Steggles

It’s rare to get a group of strangers talk openly about your film, what a valuable experience! This really is worth the entry fee!

The team’s communication is fantastic and they are very supportive of the filmmakers. They have also created some great marketing material for my film which is always a bonus, this has boosted my film on social media.

THRILLER Festival Testimonial – March 5 2019

I was intrigued that they drilled down into the thematic content of the project because that was what was most important to me. There were some intelligent, well-considered observations that made me feel like, ah, perhaps we did our job as film makers that our work prompted such a response. Myself and my lead actress did chuckle about the guy who didn’t feel it was plausible for a small girl to beat up an adult male. That was rather the point of the film, when a woman wants something, you need to be a powerhouse to stop her!
