Testimonials

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.

Tremendous festival put together by Chris and the rest of his hardworking and friendly team. Solid programing, great parties and fun networking opportunities.

Keith Marlin, Filmmaker

TFF is wonderful festival that cultivates an intimate space where filmmakers can really make a one-to-one connection. It's about friends and cinephiles hanging out and sharing a passion. Highly recommended and I hope to be back soon. All the best.

Great festival! Was awesome to be able to screen my short film, The Itch, in the town that educated [me] and in the building where I saw so many films while in college. They love movies and movie makers. They treat you right!

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!
