What our FilmFreeway filmmakers say about AFMX:

Few film festivals pay as much attention to detail as AFMX. They clearly Love their filmmakers. You'd be surprised at how many do not. The film festival showed much respect to everyone involved, looked after their guests, provided helpful daily posts on social media, and in general made sure everyone had a rocking good time., Jane Rosemont, 2023

Awesome programming, awesome events, awesome communication, awesome organization, and just an awesome experience overall. The festival staff truly care about you and your movie.
