(May 2010 meeting) "I have several scripts in development thanks to people I met at the last UFA meeting (May 2010). UFA is by far the most productive and worthwhile industry MeetUp I've been to. If you need help with a project, or want to get involved in one, UFA meetings are the place to make it happen!"

- Caroline Cooney, Writer

(October 09 meeting) "I was impressed with it's organization in giving everyone involved the opportunity to know who was there for what. I've been to events where it's more a social event over drinks and leave with a only fraction of the involvement I experienced at a UFA meeting. I've worked on two short films already as a result of the one meeting. And the connections and directions I made from my experience have affected and will continue to affect my acting career in a positive way. Looking forward to the next event."

- Tim Dax, Actor, Model

(October 09 meeting) "I was able to pitch my TV pilot and found others at this meetup to help with the project. This is a great way to meet people who are passionate about filmmaking!"

- Carl Worner, Director, Producer

(October 09 meeting) "Great meeting last time. At least 5 projects were looking for crew and cast...I got cast in one of them! Great networking opportunity"

- Stefanie Vinopal, Actor

(April 09 meeting)"The networking portion of the evening was great. I met several actors and a producer interested in one of my script ideas."

Merrel Davis, Screenwriter/Filmmaker/Video Editor

(April 09 meeting) "During the last meetup I needed an actor to work in my play "Dangerous Waters". I ended up working with one that I met at the meeting and it all worked out. Thanks for allowing me to make connections at UFA!!"

Shelley Titus, Filmmaker

(Jan 09 meeting) "After pitching my film project at the UFA meeting I received interest from an established production company with a track record of hit films. We are now in pre-production!"

- Ahsaan Mitchell, Director

(Jan 09 meeting) "I was on FIRE! Folks there were incredibly enthusiastic in their response to my pitch and I was swarmed by interested folks, including one person who offered me a lead in a film he is making. I can't wait to get started, which is why I am having an audition tomorrow!"

(Sept 08 meeting) "The last meeting was very instrumental in helping me get focus and get my project done!"

- Zorikh Lequidre, Actor/Director/Producer

"At my first UFA meeting, I made a connection w/a camera operator that I used on my PSA "the New Girl Next Door"

- Sue May, Writer/Director/Producer

"I went to the United Filmmakers and Actors group with the intention of finding a director for my music video. I was met with a theatre full of talented, energetic film professionals who listened to my ideas, gave constructive feedback, and offered their help in whatever way they could. I ended up finding a director for my video and we are currently developing the project. In addition, I also got a sweet gig from the deal- providing musical entertainment for another meetup event. Phil, you're awesome! UFA is awesome! I'll definitely be back!"

- Jennifer Logue, Singer/Songwriter

"There is nothing else like it out there. A real find."

- Joe Rosario, Director, Actor
