“This is Andrew Pollins, the director from Backward Fall and One With The Devil. Thank you so much for screening my films at the Desert Rocks Film and Music Event. I always appreciate the opportunity to be able to share my work with people. And thank you very much for your generosity in awarding Backward Fall the best of fest prize. Without festivals like you guys, independent filmmakers wouldn’t be able to continue the work that they do.

My sincerest gratitude, Andrew Pollins” 2015

“I wanted to let you know my friend came  up from LA to attend the festival and he commented after that it was the best festival he’s been to (he goes to many of them in the LA area) because there was a complete lack of pretentiousness that is sometimes found at other festivals. He loved the casual nature of it all, and even said “Backward Fall” made him cry.”  October 2015
