"Great festival that is a real champion of genre film makers. Very supportive of the films it screens and the female film making teams behind them."

"If you can get into this fest its amazing probably the BEST fest I have ever had the pleasure to partake in...even just attending as a supporter you will get something out of it."

"Being part of Etheria felt like more than being part of a festival - it was like being in a really cool team of kickass genre women."

"We got some great press and response from our film, and many people reported on the excellent quality of the films. I highly recommend applying and attending this film if you can!"

"Thank you for your support this past year of my short film, Undress Me. Your festival was a great help in bringing the film to a wider audience."

"I was so in love with all the amazing films screened and being able to sit up there and talk about horror movies with you talented, amazing women was just the best...This is awesome. You all are awesome."

“Managers and studio executives have already contacted me since the Egyptian event three days ago. It’s amazing. I have been in several major festivals with this short, in fact I have been in four Oscar qualifiers and this only happens with Etheria, so congratulations, you are doing an amazing job.”

"I feel that years from now I will be able to say that Etheria was the catalyst that helped jump start my career."

"I can say first hand that showing at Etheria Film Night was a highlight of our festival run."

"Etheria’s offerings walk this walk year after year, spitting in the face of those who say women don’t gravitate toward creating or watching dark, cerebral, or disturbing films."

“I wasn’t really trying to give women their first break. I was trying to find the best director, writer, or below the line individual, and if they happened to be a woman, I would hire them. Other guys would look only at men, while I would look at the talent irrespective of their gender.”
