    The LGBTQ+ Los Angeles Film Festival was wonderful to work with. They've been great with communication and even helped us promote our film in other parts of the world!

    They also provided feedback which is always helpful for our future projects!

    It was so much thrill and joy watching the audiences giving direct feedback on your film. Their comments were heartwarming, appreciative, and so insightful that made me see the film in refreshing ways. I wish the festival continue to grow and succeed and will not hesitate to submit here again.

    This was a great festival. The organisers was super friendly and communicated well. Getting audience feedback as a film was a first for me and very moving. It's also lovely that they will record a podcast with you and promote your film. It feels that they really do have the success independent filmmakers at heart. I wish them every success as a festival.
