    What a beautiful fetival. Thank you so much for selecting A Better Place. We were so honoured to be voted Best Long Form Short Film, and really happy to see the audience reactions you provided. This is the first time we have had so much effort from a festival to provide a response to our film. It has been truly motivating. Thank you.

    It was especially gratifying to hear the reactions of the younger audience to our film The Lodge, about LGBTQ retirees. Something like that has never happened for us at any other festival. We've put the comments on our website! Thank you.

  • What a great experience. The LGBTQ+ LA Film Festival gave me an opportunity to get my first ever film LENNON out there. They were all so king, supportive and answered all questions I had. The support and encouragement was amazing!
