People Are Talking About The Festival

"You pulled together a heroic task into a great event. Kudos!”
Frank Chindamo, President & Chief Creative Officer, www.FunLittleMovies.com

"I so enjoyed everything about it--the event, the content, the people, the technology, the enthusiasm..."
Former NFL Football Player, American Gladiator, Actor, Lee "HAWK" Reherman

"Winning the Director’s Choice Award from the Dallas Video & Film Festival was a personal accomplishment that I will always cherish, but have the documentary win the overall Grand Prize from the New Media Film Festival and acknowledged in such a way, and amongst such esteemed colleagues, speaks more to the collaborative effort that the entire cast and crew put into the film. It’s an important credit and compliment to all of the interviewees – many of whom had never been on-camera – the crews, and my partner on the project, Ramy Katrib. We’re collaborating on my latest project, a portrait called, To Fix You, about the future of healthcare, medicine and human longevity. I hope to leverage this award in working with more colleges, universities and pharmaceutical companies and am deeply humbled and grateful.” – Spencer Halpin, Moral Combat

"Susan put together programming that covers the spectrum of where today's storytellers are sharing their stories. The New Media Film Festival is not for the young or old, it is for all of us who have a story to share with the world."
- Stephanie Piche, Executive Producer, Mingle Media TV Network
