    The L-Dub Film Festival is a fun & intimate festival surrounded by the cool, artsy and eccentric atmosphere of downtown Lake Worth. The hospitality toward filmmakers and attendees is second to none. It's a venue that truly supports the artistic spirit. My only wish is that the festival would be promoted more and more filmmakers submit to the festival. The greater number of films that are submitted only helps bring a fuller, richer and more comprehensive film experience to everyone.
    I would and will submit my films again and only see this festival growing in it's attendance, quality and reputation.

    Though I wasn't able to attend the festival as I don't live in the States, I must say that the organizers were super-friendly and communicative throughout our correspondence. They were also very patient with receiving the digital copy of the film. Taking part in this festival was a heart-warming experience.
