2019 festival stats
Blackbird Film Festival is one of the greatest film festival experiences I have had. Our team was truly blown away & we hope to be back again next year!
The Blackbird Film Festival was by far my favorite festival to be lucky enough to attend. They treated all of their filmmakers with the utmost respect and appreciation.
From the moment we arrived, we felt completely welcome. The organizers and interns worked really hard to foster a warm and fun environment for the filmmakers, with events, meals, parties, and free breakfast!
Couldn't have been a better experience. I traveled from Iowa to be there and it was worth every mile. The organizers made sure you felt welcome as a filmmaker, and held Q&A sessions after each screening block!
The audiences were always sizeable and appreciative. I went to 11 of the 12 blocks, and I would guess there were 150 to 200 people for every one, even the early morning blocks.
