“Namibia” (Documentary) – Director, FR
I was pleased to see that my film “Namibia” was treated like all the other films presented, that the Oniros team took the time to watch it despite the amateur context in which it was made (budget of 2400 $). I also appreciated the follow-up and the quality of the exchanges I had with the team. “Namibia” won 2 awards at the Oniros festival and I’m delighted about it. Thank you to the festival team and congratulations for your energy and enthusiasm!

“Taste of Night” (Music Video) – Assistant Director, RU
One of the best film festivals if not the best we participated till now. Level of presentation of submitted films is extraordinary. They have wonderful site promoting submitted films. Social media is definitely working well with a frequent updates. There are several levels that define choice and they are always in time. You never have to worry if your film was received or else every step is shown through Facebook. Thus it is possible see posters of all submitted films and see your competitors from the beginning. The site is definitely positive and informative. If there are any questions or doubts it is always possible to ask organizators and have your answer in several minutes. We did not yet had the possibilities to be present at live screenings but seeing such an organizational level in everyday life we are sure it should be top level. The festival is definitely worth the entrance fee. We will for sure submit again.

“Filling In” (Series Pilot) – Director, USA
The Oniros Film Awards have proven to my team and I on the comedy-fantasy ‘Filling In’ to be one of the very best organized and communicative film fests we’ve ever had the honor of having a film of ours selected for. We especially appreciated the quick responses to any questions that we had, and the incredible job that they do with updating all of their social media platforms with class and style. The laurels that OFA provides at every level (official selection, finalist, and winner) for the selected films are all first rate, and the variety of formats provided of the laurels made it super easy for us to quickly use them on our production stills and graphics created for ‘Filling In’ on our own social media platforms. I also love how this fest sticks to its notification dates and announcements at every step of the way. This is especially impressive when one takes into consideration that they are handling 12 major categories and several additional categories each and every month! We were so very honored to have ‘Filling In’ declared by OFA as the Best Series Pilot and Best Comedy for July of 2017, and I look forward to submitting other films and projects to OFA again in the near future.

“Goldfish” (Short Film) – Director, UK
The Oniros is a really professionally run operation. They’re prompt with notifications and replying to enquiries, but most importantly, they understand the true value of exposure for independent filmmakers and go to every effort to promote your film and get it out there and noticed! For all this, you pay a very reasonable price for submission, and the option to be nominated in additional categories – increasing your opportunity for success – is an innovation other competitions and festivals should take note of. Entering the Oniros is highly recommended!
