Noel Donaldson, Laura Hankin & Danny Simmons tell us why everyone should support THE ARTISTS FORUM (30 seconds).
Great and Awesome festival!! It is a honor to be an official selection in THE ARTISTS FORUM FESTIVAL OF THE MOVING IMAGE. I really appreciate that I have this chance to be part of it. It was a great time to see my film with all the crowds in your festival. I cannot wait to submit my works more to you in future.

It is a great honor that my historical short,
The Life of Marie, received Best Narrative Short and Best Cinematography awards. I wish I could have been there, but I am looking forward for the next edition. Thank you very much, Amos White V!

Thanks to Amos White V and all the others at The Artists Forum for their work on The Artists Forum Festival of the Moving Image. I was honored to have screened
Katyusha alongside a diverse range of wonderful movies from all over the world. While I was there I learned that at least one of the other movies was in competition at Cannes this year. So, I was stunned when
Katyusha walked away with five awards! My thanks also go out to all those who helped during the creation of
Katyusha, particularly Anna Gubenkova, the
voice of Katyusha whose singing contribute so much to the soundtrack. http://stephenhilyard.com/katyusha.htm

An excellent and promising festival only in its second year. Amos did a wonderful job making this not just a festival for lovers of underground and artsy short films, but to provide the attending filmmakers with opportunities to network. Communication was excellent and some of the screened films were definitely worth the while. I hope The Artists Forum will continue and grow over the coming years. A hidden gem, but probably not for long!

Thank you very much to the director Amos White and all the team for the opportuny to screen in New York, congratulations for the great event, wish you all the best for the next editions!

A festival with a lot of heart and appreciations for cinema. I was honored to be apart of this festival. Really expect big things from this festival in the future.

A festival with heart! The beautiful vision and hard work of a few dedicated artists makes this the warmest most hospitable festival. Amos and Devorah have created an environment where people connect and celebrate artistic vision. A very sweet experience!

A great (opportunity) to showcase your film and networking.
⁃ Mel Hsieh, 2016 Winner ⁃ Best Sound Design: Interface
A wonderful and impressive festival produced by a small group of artists with big ambitions and even bigger heart. I was particularly impressed with the quality of films screened which is not typical among new festivals. But it’s evident that a lot of time and consideration was put into every detail. Continued success and congratulations to Amos and The Artists Forum team.
