Testimonials

It was a one-of-a-kind event, a singular experience, an understated but profoundly moving hometown homage built on sturdy pillars of respect and devotion.

Donald Munro, arts critic for The Fresno Bee, writing about our fundraiser event, “The Jazz of Poetry: The Poetry of Jazz,” featuring Philip Levine, Peter Everwine, and the Benjamin Boone quartet. December 2012.

[It's] very professional, it’s very nurturing, and they make sure that you meet the other filmmakers. They spend the time to actually talk to you and the audiences are always very appreciative, which is wonderful.

Doug Van Bebber, Porterville native and Los Angeles-based filmmaker, talking about the Fresno Film Festival in The Collegian, Fresno State’s student newspaper. April 2013.

The craft in creating these narratives, within the microcosm of the short-film space, is something that should be celebrated. Fresno Filmworks and the Tower Theatre honor these Oscar nominees by showing the features on the big screen where they belong.

Colby Tibbet, a student journalist, writing about the Oscar-Nominated Short Films in The Rampage, the Fresno City College student newspaper. February 2013.

This is like no other event in Fresno. . . . Filmworks does a great job introducing independent films to Fresno, which is something organizers felt was lacking in our culture.

Veronica Stumpf, blogger for That Fresno Blog, writing about the Fresno Film Festival. April 2013.

This didn’t exist when I attended [Fresno] State. It’s wonderful that now there’s a place for local filmmakers to express themselves.

Tyrone Huff, Fresno native and Los Angeles-based filmmaker, talking about the 2008 Fresno Film Festival in The Collegian, Fresno State’s student newspaper. April 2008.
