Under 5min. Festival Testimonial – September 19 2018

Randy Kerr

While we didn’t attend, I must say we received some of the most enlightening and encouraging feedback from both the Wildsong Podcast and Audience reaction video at the festival. It’s always so gratifying to hear your messages are getting through to the audience and they recognize the work and choices we made in creating the film. Great, punctual, and simple communication / coordination. Highly recommend!!

There is an episode about this festival in our archives as we talk about the audience and all the great films we showcased at this event.

The theme of the September 2018 FEMALE/UNDER 5 MINUTE FEEDBACK Film Festival in Toronto was “Power Dynamics”.

Each film was about an individual(s) facing dynamics of power with another individual or external being.

This was a nice split festival of a showcase of Female Directors in the first half, and Under 5 Minute Films in the second half. Two of our most popular events that are showcased in Toronto. So why not start the Fall 2018 season off with a bang!?

This was the last festival for a while for moderator Kierston Drier who has taken a job that she couldn’t pass up that conflicts with the weekly events. Kierston is the ultimate professional who does an outstanding job. She will be missed, but most definitely will be coming back soon.

See you at the festivals.
