I've been on pins and needles since Saturday (Really) and am so happy that Leo won Best Actor for Diamond Zero. I think you have done a terrific job with everything that I've seen. I'm glad there are festivals like yours out there and thanks so much for including us in your lineup! Yours sincerely.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank You! I can't believe that my first ever screenplay won third place! I was thrilled just to be nominated, but to actually win an award!!! I promise I will put the script consultation to good use. I'm already formulating ideas for my next script, and I hope it will yield good things.
Jennifer M. Oaks, Screenwriter (Pennsylvania, "Bloodletter")

I wanted to thank everyone once again for making TFF happen! And for selecting YELLOW as part of the program. You guys have a sincere interest in helping filmmakers succeed. I can't say enough how much I appreciate that! From posting submissions on your website (I don't know of any other festival that does that) to giving out plenty of awards, you folks are truly the best friend of a filmmaker. Thank you very much! Maybe I will have a new film for next year and can then meet you all in person. Thank you again for organizing the best genre film fest!

On behalf of everyone involved in Primevil, I want to thank you for letting us be a part of this year's Terror Film Festival. Travis, Davin, Chris and I want to thank you for your hospitality. We had a great time. It was also a good learning experience for me as this was the first film festival that Primevil was accepted and screened at, and my first to attend as a director. We'll see you next year whether or not we have a film to submit.

“Before I submitted to Terror Film Festival, I called the festival director with a question.  It turned out to be the most open and honest conversation I’ve had with a festival director out of the many I’ve dealt with.  He truly champions the independent filmmaker.  And having attended the opening night, I can honestly say I’ve never seen a more consistently good selection of films in one festival.  Truly a great festival, and one that I was proud to be part of.”
David Campfield, Writer/Director (New York, "Dark Chamber")
Fourth Horizon Cinema

"I wanted to let you know that your handling of festival promotion is terrific.  I have never seen a festival so open to promoting all entries as you have done.  The website is great.  Thanks again, and I look forward to attending!"
Mark Daniels, Screenwriter (Kentucky)

"We are really looking forward to this Festival above all others. Thank you for putting together such a first class event. We are proud that our small contribution will be associated."

"Wow!  Your website for this year’s Festival is outstanding.  I read the descriptions of the submitted films and screenplays and I’m really looking forward to seeing the films described."

"Good morning. I just got back from another film festival and they had a huge 1,200 seat theater, but yet there were only 25 people in the whole audience!! YOUR festival is how it's supposed to be done! It was a great festival and we had a great time. Thanks again for all your efforts. Regards."

"I just wanted to tell you again how much we enjoyed ourselves. We had an absolute blast. The screening, Q&A, and everything, were fabulous. You and your staff were very personable and made us feel right at home. I've been to a few of these fests, but yours was the first I've experienced where the filmmakers truly were THE priority above everything else. You guys did a grade-A job with making us feel like it was all about us. Thanks for that. I also really enjoyed chatting with you at the bar afterwards. It was an awesome experience I won't soon forget. I probably won't have a new film for you by 2007, but I just may have a script. Thanks again for everything and good luck with next year. Talk to ya! Submit your film to this festival, it kicks so much ass!!
