TFF is one of my favorite festivals. Great programming, engaged audiences, and the perfect environment to connect with other filmmakers. Watching Lost Highway on an IMAX screen was one of the greatest cinematic experiences of my life. Chris, Jennifer, Steve and the whole crew have put together something special that I felt lucky to be a part of.

The Tallahassee Film Festival is amazing! The event really celebrates filmmakers and makes them feel special. The staff does an outstanding job at every turn. It was FANTASTIC!

One of my favorite regional film festivals! The programming is outstanding: for the films in competition, the programmers select excellent-quality and TRUE indie films that are not just the same films playing all of the other regional fests. Plus they showcase exciting titles fresh from Sundance, Slamdance, etc for their out-of-competition slots. (I gladly watched six features and three shorts in two days.) They are also extremely well-organized and communicative. Great after parties, Q&A sessions and a well-run awards ceremony (featuring beautiful trophies) on closing night. A relaxed and friendly atmosphere where the opportunities for networking with other filmmakers are plentiful. I greatly hope to return!

Unfortunately I didn't get to attend TFF 2019 but the line-up looked amazing! They kept us in the loop about our screening and RT our posts to promote the fest. Seems like a great group of movie lovers who appreciate edgy content that promotes new voices. Would definitely submit again.

Tallahassee is an excellent film festival. I live in the UK and unfortunately I was unable to attend, but I keenly followed their social media feeds. They clearly built a strong dedicated audience because they select wonderful films. It was an honour to have my short film PRACTICE selected. I highly recommend this festival.
