  • Sweet Rind

    For Sweet Rind, being a part of LA Sun Film Fest was elevatory to our new filmmaking career. We were awarded our first wins for Best Actor & Actress and will forever keep this as a defining moment on our journey to even greater excellence. It still feels surreal and we want to lay testament to the professionalism and attentiveness of the organizers. Seeing work from other filmmakers is also very inspiring and encouraging and we will absolutely maintain contact with those who've made an impact on us.

    We highly recommend this festival and will definitely return with future projects.
