    I'm so glad to be a part of LGBTQ + Los Angeles. The audience feedback session provided a valuable and supportive opportunity for the beginning filmmaker to bond with the audience. Thanks to Allison and Matthew's wonderful work, I'd love to be here again!

    LGBTQ+ Los Angeles Film Festival was far and away the most encouraging festival experience. The love of storytelling rang true. Audience reactions are priceless to filmmakers so it's with much gratitude that the team got to enjoy the encouraging feedback. The professionalism in the communication, interviewing process, the feedback editorial and positive energy was greatly appreciated. A truly exceptional panel and organization.
