    Grateful to have our film, The Age of Blossoms, selected and screened at this festival. Learned a lot from the other filmmakers and Banks did a great job curating the best of the best. Hope to take part in this festival again in the future.

    We thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to screen our film, "Inhale, Exhale, Draw" at the virtual LSISFF. Thank you for inviting us! It was a pleasure to hear commentary from other filmmakers about their film projects as well as answer questions about our creative process. Great films. Great fun. We look forward to future LSISFF screenings!

    I really appreciated being a part of the online festival. The quality of the short films was very high -- I definitely enjoyed watching the other selected entries from around the world. Banks the curator is very friendly and responsive, and his enthusiasm for film, and especially pieces in the showcase, is very clear. Thanks again!
