    This was a brilliantly run festival; it was amazing to screen at the Chinese Cinema on Hollywood boulevard; screening quality was excellent and the whole event felt prestigious and well-organised. Thanks & hope to see you again!

    After being in several festivals, this is the first one I've been in that I felt strongly enough about to write a review. This festival was wonderful. Nicole and her team were amazing to work with and the screenings were flawless. I don't know how they got access to the Chinese 6 theater in LA, (This was only their second year) but it was well worth the effort. My producing partner and I met great people form around the world and saw some really good films. I would definitely go back and if you are in LA - then this is a DO NOT miss.
