Grossmann Fantastic Film & Wine Festival has been named one of 25 Coolest Film Festivals in the World of 2023 by MovieMaker Magazine from the USA, the world's most widely read independent film magazine. The annual list recognizes festivals that go out of their way to be innovative, welcoming and simply cool.
“We’re deeply thankful to the thoughtful panel of moviemakers and film experts who handpicked these festivals,” says MovieMaker editor-in-chief Tim Molloy. “In addition to celebrating film, all of these beloved festivals offer the promise of new friendships, new adventures, and new experiences, on- and off-screen.”
MovieMaker’s 2023 Panel of Cool includes Katie Bignell and Ian Bignell (Festival Formula), as well as filmmakers Hanadi Elyan (Salma’s Home), Camrus Johnson (She Dreams at Sunrise), Aaron Hills (Cinedigm, Fish Kill Flea), Geoff Marslett (Quantum Cowboys), Sylvia Caminer (Follow Her), and Ondi Timoner (Last Flight Home).
In 2013, Grossmann Festival was voted one of the 5 Coolest Horror/Sci-Fi Film Festivals in the World by MovieMaker Magazine readers, while their expert panels named Grossmann one of the 30 Bloody Best Genre Fests in the World 2019 and one of World's 50 Best Genre Fests of 2021.
We thank the MovieMaker Magazine & the panelists and congratulate all other festivals on this prestigious list.
