Testimonials

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!

Tim Driscoll, Filmmaker

The Tallahassee Film Festival was absolutely wonderful! My team and I were very lucky to have been selected to screen our short film and the experience was nothing short of incredible. The TFF team was very friendly and they did an excellent job at communicating the schedule of the festival and arranging the events for the filmmakers. Filmmakers came from all over the country, from Texas, to California, and the networking was wonderful. I can't wait to come back next year to support the TFF team. 10/10 would recommend to any filmmaker who is looking to submit to a festival.

This festival benefits from a great and knowledgeable team. Despite it being fairly new, their programming was really good and we enjoyed all of the Q&As with some top documentary filmmakers. Definitely worth the submission fee!

Unfortunately I wasn't able to make it in person - but the virtual presence was robust and extremely easy to navigate ! Really grateful for the online component. Great communication overall. Sounds like the in person audience was a blast. Thanks for having my film !

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.
