    This festival is amazing- they do a great job highlighting so many different films and getting work seen. A must if you are an LGBTQ filmmaker.

    We were very happy with how the festival welcomed us and our film THE ART OF SIN. Proud to have been awarded the best feature award in the festival. Communication was flawless, and they created a lovely video with audience feedback after watching our film, which was a great marketing tool for us. We will be back with future films.

    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.
