Wow!! What an amazing film festival. The communication has been exemplary. Our film was reviewed thoroughly and we received a 4 page detailed Review on our film. This was a spectacular experience for us as filmmakers. The team who manages the festival as well as the judges are highly skilled with an amazing creative view. Our film "I Resign" was reviewed and researched thoroughly by the judges before the awards and we were really impressed. American Golden Picture International Film Festival is a great venue for any aspiring filmmaker to get honest feedback to learn the craft better to make better films. Highly recommended.

Ian Woodward

From the moment my film was dispatched to the American Golden Picture International Film Festival to receiving the news of an award it had received, the event was an invigorating, rollercoaster experience of joy and pleasure that was as dizzying as it was awe-inspiring. At times it wandered into the curve of contagion, maybe requiring a call to be put through to the World Health Organization, because of the high level of effervescence it was intent on pursuing! So congratulations to the festival’s brilliant organizers and directors, Mahmoud Shoolizadeh and Rozina Behrooz, for bringing such passion and enchantment to the proceedings.

The opportunity to connect with other filmmakers and investors internationally makes this festival so unique. I will definitely submit again!

American Golden Picture International Film Festival was very professional yet friendly in their interactions, prompt with notifications, and very clear about submission guidelines and deadlines. I'm very proud to be awarded by the jury.

Ben Tobin

This festival has been a great experience. The communication is top notch, and made us feel very taken care of, and there's a great networking opportunity.

Marci Krown

I found the communication from the festival to be very good and very attentive. You can tell the leader of the festival Mahmoud Shoolizadeh has a passion for filmmakers! The opportunity to submit your film monthly, for an award and then possibly be selected for their yearly festival was new to me. I liked the opportunity to showcase areas of the film you normally don't see in an awards competition-trailer, score, poster, etc. The value of this gives more opportunities for beginning filmmakers to possibly win an award! Being that my experience was very positive in the early stages of this festival, I have no doubt that everything else about this festival will be just as wonderful! Thank you so much!

Brijesh Gurnani

No one can argue they have quite possibly some of the nicest looking laurels and certificates among all film festivals.
