    This festival is so well put together we are amazed! If we didn't have a deadline for our animated TV special bearing down on us this month, we would all be there with bells on. If you can make the live screenings, we envy you. We appreciate all our awards from Los Angeles CineFest and all the hard work the staff has done to make this even successful. Cowabunga!

    I did not attend the festival unfortunately, but my communication with the festival was always prompt and kind. The value of the submission price is also incredible.

    I plan on submitting again in the future, and you should too!
