TV Festival Testimonial – March 6 2019

Particularly the reading portion. Before, most of my writing existed in my head or in the heads of others. It is a completely different experience to have it read out loud, especially from a dialogue perspective.

We are so happy that our web series got to be a part of the FEEDBACK festival! It was extremely helpful to receive both positive and constructive feedback from audience members. The festival itself is very well organized with excellent communication from its contacts. The lineup had a great mix of work from both experienced and emerging filmmakers. Thanks to the FEEDBACK team!!

The theme of the June 2018 WEB SERIES FEEDBACK Film Festival in Toronto was “Invisible Obstacles”. Every single film was about characters needing to overcome conflicts that really didn’t exist..

Web Series are the now and future of media and film festivals. So I was very honored to show 6 of the best TV webisodes in the world today. The great thing about this festival is that there is more to come for the audience if they like. Simply put the titles of these shows into your google machine and you can watch many episodes of each.

This is what’s so cool about this particular festival. The night doesn’t end when the festival is over.

The first ever FEEDBACK Festival where the entire program was already on the web for people to watch before they entered the cinema. So this night was really about the audience feedback section and getting a nice promotional video for the filmmaking team who made these shows.

Great night all around. Many more Web Series Festivals to come.

See you at the festivals.

– Matthew Toffolo
