"One of the most eclectic slates I've seen on Filmaka made this an exceedingly hard decision. From a very simple but powerful performance-based concept to a sprawling, futuristic informercial, to some highly non linear and personal stories about grief. It made our job as judges exceedingly difficult, which I don't appreciate, but on the other hand it's a great sign of the breadth of talent emerging all over the world. When I weigh the pros and cons - my desire to watch the season finale of Legion vs the future of cinema- I suppose it was worth it. Congratulations to everyone, even the people I didn't vote for, they all did great work." -Zak Penn

"I always enjoy seeing and voting on our future filmmakers. Great job to everyone who participated. Keep telling your stories!" -Mädchen Amick

Very well done! High production value. Great commentary on society's addiction to "feel good" virtual reality escapes. Photography was beautiful and editing was superb. Even the narration performance was perfect. Great job directing!

Anshul Joshi

Thank you M├Ądchen for watching my entry and leaving such a wonderful review for it! I really appreciate it. Also, I love Twin Peaks! So this is a total fanboy moment... Thank you once again!
