• This festival was a revelation. The scope and quality of films, workshops and networking opportunities were truly splendid. It’s busy, it’s exciting, it’s thrilling. Organised to a fine detail, the SEIFF is a filmmaker’s dream. One of the best in the UK. - David Gilbank, director of Polterheist

  • The festival programme was varied and well-put together and the lovely glossy brochure was probably the best I’ve ever received at a film festival. I could go on all day about the things I loved about this festival. This was a festival that truly embraced filmmakers at all stages in their career and that’s a rare thing to achieve I think. Well done team and thank you! - Rowenna Baldwin, director of Goodnight Friend

  • Awards can be wonderful but what SEIFF does that is more rewarding (that so many other festivals don’t) is they put your films at the fore front of their programme for anyone and everyone to see. It’s a festival that cares, you couldn’t ask for more. - Liam Harris, director of Perched

  • Thank you for the red carpet, my first ever! At the heart of it was a deep love of film and empathy with filmmakers. I was very proud that The Road to Sparta was selected to screen at the first ever Satisfied Eye – if the festival maintains its passion and ambition it will still be with us in 50 years… - Barney Spender, director of The Road to Sparta

  • The attention to highest standards and detail was amazing. The activities that involved the local community and all ages really made this “an event.” For a first time festival the organization was phenomenal. I look forward to attending next year. - Margery Wilson, writer of The Sleeper by the River

  • The festival is clearly run by people who love film (indeed, there are filmmakers among the organisers) and they clearly know how important feedback is and are also incredibly supportive. - Michael Cusack, director of After All

  • My experience of SATISFIED EYE Film Festival was second to none. This was largely impart to Chris Hastings’ excellent communications and welcoming attitude. I was deeply honoured to have my film Tonic of the Sea recognised and I am looking forward to attending next year already. - Jonathan J Scott, director of Tonic of the Sea
