Reviews from 2019
We had a lot of great feedback from our first event in 2019, please have a read through the film makers comments.
Geoff Harmer - Dead Air
"Such a cool festival! Great location! Great selection of films too! Very happy with all aspects of this event! We even won an award! So humbled!"
Patricia Kelly - When Possible, Take a U-Turn
"We received a lovely welcome from Amanda and Andy and were delighted to accept the Best LGBT Film award for When Possible, Take a U-Turn. It was terrific to be involved in the inaugural Linear International Film Festival and sincerely hope it goes from strength to strength. We will definitely continue to submit our short films and hopefully attend this festival again in the future."
Susie Jones - New Mars
"It was an honour to have my short NEW MARS chosen for this year's festival - the NEW MARS team were thrilled to bits to also win BEST SCI-FI!
Although I wasn't able to attend as currently filming - I have to say I was very impressed by how much time and energy the Linear IFF team put into making the event truly special. Great communication throughout the process, done with great warmth and care. They also went out of their way to bring along the Mayor and the press, which was an extra boost for the films and the filmmakers. Looking forward to attending next year. Thumbs up all round from me!"

Very good festival! Interesting content. You help greatly to promote new films and authors.
A heart-warming, creative and very diverse festival, showcasing unique films from so many different genres and countries. Proud to have taken part in this filmmaking event that included not only screening and prizes, but a warm welcome, networking and opportunities for discussion
Great festival with a brilliant philosophy in regard to the films they screen and organisation skills. It's great that independent filmmakers can get their films screened at wonderful festivals like this.
This is an amazing festival with wonderful organizers and some really talented filmmakers presenting their work. It was a great honor to have my short film, Fowl Fury, recognized as an Official Selection by a film festival that really cares about filmmakers and their work. Attention All Filmmakers: Bookmark this festival for next year and every year!
Great new festival with a nice variety of categories and films. Good quality screening & audio. A bit cold in that church in November but we still had a great night and saw many good shorts.
