"Bucks County Film Fest was a great event - I was thrilled to be presented with Chamber Choice award for Le Spectre de la Rose. I will definitely be back!"

Daniel Karasik

"Sadly I had to move out of state and could not attend. But that said, the communication for the event was great. Many thanks for the nomination and allover win for 'Every Other Night'. Highly recommend entering your projects!"

Mark Cline

"Was honored to be selected for this festival. Unfortunately, could not attend but from the photos it looks like it was a great weekend. Excellent communication with the festival team. I'll attend next year regardless of whether or not I've got a film there!"

Dave Patten

"A stellar experience from start to finish. Very direct and personable in all communications. Pleasant, comfortable settings for networking with interesting, down to earth people with useful insights. I can't recommend BFFF enough."

Megan Gale

"This Film Festival could not be put on by better people. Brad and his crew genuinely care about each entry and the local film community they are trying to grow. Showings were very organized and grouped accordingly...not just a random back to back film showing like some do. Also great networking at a close bar after! Looking forward to making something else to submit in the future."

Jon Rehr

"It is always a pleasure to attain this festival. The films are amazing on every level, and it's great to hear the finalist screenplays read, including mine, at a table read by accomplished actors. Hats off to all the organizers, especially Brad Sanders, for a memorable evening!!"

Chuck McClelland

"As someone who has been fortunate enough to be a part of film festivals around the United States as well as a few Internationally, I can say that what Bucks County Film Festival gets right is its celebration of Filmmakers. BFFF makes each filmmaker feel honored and that their craft and films are something to be proud of. The screenings are held at the County Theater in Doylestown - A STATE OF THE ART theater - with a plethora of seating. The kindness, care, awards, and communication are second to none. The first film I had a part of the BFFF was a film I made 10 years ago. My experience then as it was this most recent time only gotten better (and back then I was just as impressed) I love that the films shown include High School films as well as Emerging Filmmakers. Again, this really reflects that the festival cares about the future filmmakers that keep the industry alive!"

Tyler Wallach

"Very lax and easy going people led to a fun festival with a lot of diverse talent and gifted people, some of which are younger than others. Here's to more delightful films in the future."

Eli Copperman

"Amazing group of people, Brad runs a tight ship, professional and hugely hospitable."

Chris Cole

"What an incredible time! Some festivals are very scattered and uninviting. This festival made me feel as if I was part of the Bucks County Family. Screening is inside a historical theater; crowd was great, and networking was worth it."

Brian Pollock

"Really enjoyed Bucks County. Communication was great, and the organization did a great job putting on a great virtual event despite all of the complications regarding COVID. Will definitely want to attend this event once we're able to do in-person festivals again!"

Wesley Mellott

"An excellent experience to be had by all! The entire crew behind this festival was very communicative and helpful, answering any questions that I had. I will certainly return for next year's fest."

Liz Chiodo

"Awesome fest. Kids loved it. Very professional and excellent communication. Looking forward to future fests."
