At its core it is a good service. You can sign up for film festivals and generally the festivals are real.

The issue lies with the fact you can barely unsubscribe from emails. Festivals can obviously email huge lists of emails and it doesn't matter if you unsubscribe from individual festivals because another festival can still email you.

It is understandable if they're ones you've entered but they rarely are.

Most recently I have received a ton of emails on an account for my own festival that hadn't even launched yet! I made sure to specifically unsubscribe from their emails but clearly they don't care.

Support tells me they don't give out my email which I suppose is possible and that FILM freeway acts as a middle man so the third parties never actually see my email, but that is not really the point when my inbox is filling up with these useless emails.

I have specifically been told by support I will no longer receive emails and since then (yesterday evening) I've received 4. I'm sure by the end of the day I'll have even more.

Fully recommend using a throw away email with them. If this is their approach to your data, I would worry about all your other information too.

Very scam company. We have used this platform for 2 years, they have used our image to take users' money. When we registered another festival, they asked us for money, and we didn't refuse and they closed both accounts, creating big problems for the various participants and for our organization. We have also sent all the press information on our events supported by the institutions, but we have not solved anything. We filed a complaint with the Canadian police and reported it to the Embassy, these scams cannot be suffered. We do not recommend using it if you do not want to lose your money and damage the image

One problem with FilmFreewqy is that they don't announce upfront the location of the festival. You have to scratch around to find out.

How can you pick what festivals to enter and attend if they don't tell you WHERE they are.

There is little or no vetting, resulting in fake festivals that accept fees without actually reviewing submissions. In my own experience, a submission went from "under consideration" to "not reviewed" to "not accepted." Imagine that: not reviewed and therefore not accepted. Clearly, a fake "take the money and run" scam. From a legal perspective, FilmFreeway is as liable for the scam as the scammers themselves. Shame on them and the fake festivals that they allow to be promoted.

Filmfreeway is a GEM. Since starting my screenwriting career in 2018. They have gone above and beyond. Their customer service is second to none and the people are amazing. I recommend this site to everyone looking for a way to submit their projects.

FilmFreeway is the best thing to have happened for indie filmmakers, like me. Seamless workings, never disappoints. I absolutely heart it!

FilmFreeway is an excellent company and website to deal with. As a Film Festival we use their website to receive submissions from Film-makers all around the world. The site is easy to navigate, has adaptability, custom forms and features that can be changed but also their customer service is second to none. Within twenty four hours I have always had a response to my queries and more than that – quick action when things need to be addressed. I'd highly recommend FilmFreeway either as a film-maker or as a FilmFestival
