EQUUS Film Festival 2018 Winnie Winners List  

The 2018 EQUUS Film Festival, held at the WYTHE Hotel and Cinema in New York, November 30-December 2, with a Welcome Gathering at the Wild Horses of Sable Island Gallery in Brooklyn was an overwhelming success.

Filmmakers came from near and far including those from India, Australia, Norway, Finland, Ireland, Mongolia, Canada, Germany, Portugal, Holland, Denmark and many states in the USA. There were over 40 films being represented by those in some way involved with the films.

Accolades from those present continue to fill the social media pages with personal comments being received daily by founder Lisa Diersen and co-organizer Diana De Rosa.

While there were too many to mention here is just a sampling of the comments that followed this year’s event:

“My biggest takeaway from EFF 2018 was the intense passion all felt about the positive role of the horse in our lives, no matter what breed. That and the strong advocacy to make their lives better.” Peter Prince who wrote the movie video song for Cobra Wild Mustang to World Champion.

“Loved being with other storytellers, networking, seeing our film on the big screen, encouraging other filmmakers and being encouraged.” Ryan Koral with the film Desert Flight.

“I wanted to thank you for everything you did to bring the festival to fruition. It's a mountain of work to program a festival, so thank you for all of the long hours that you put into creating a space for our films. I really enjoyed meeting everyone and was impressed with the breadth and depth of the programming!” Ethan Downing from the film Walk On.
