How did you come up with these festivals?
The selected festivals are a curated list based on traffic within the site along with a very spirited debate with the MFW crew. Also, heavy drinking is involved.

What about the rest of the world?
MFW is based out of North America. For our first year, we wanted to keep it a bit smaller and local. Plus, there’s the excellent UK awards which do a rad job of covering oversea fests.
