Press and Testimonials

Organizations like Project Twenty1 are critical to the survival of independent artists and filmmakers.” – PA State Senator Daylin Leach

“Not Just A Film Festival. To be sure, this isn’t some ill-defined, flighty boast about how they offer moviemakers ‘so much more than the average festival’. The group is literally more than just a film festival.”  -MovieMaker Magazine

“This is so, so much better than reality TV. It is about real talent and art.” –Akiko Ashley, Founder, Luminetik Animation Studio

“This is one of the best ideas ever for Independent Filmmakers. You are the type of festival I think all filmmakers dream of. You’re getting the films ‘out there’.” -Anthony Gutierrez, IFFYNTX (International Film Festival for Y’all North Texas)

“If you are serious about being involved in the film industry… One of the best film festivals/competitions around!” –Scott Ennis, New London, CT

“This is the real deal in short film competitions!” –Ricardo Finnis, Sunrise, FL

“What an adventure!… We were buzzing with emotion all through the shoot. But I never expected other people would feel it too! Project Twenty1, you’ve awakened the sleeping acting beast within. Bring on the next festival!!!”  –Grace Rowan, Grand Rapids, MI

“I’ve been lucky enough to be accepted to a few festivals, but you guys have by far been the best to work with. Something as simple as letting me know you received my film (and even checked it to make sure it works!) is awesome… So I just wanted to thank you and reiterate how honored I am to be in the festival. Thanks!”
-Nikki Lemon, independent filmmaker
