    Last year's festival was great, this year's was even better! Peter and Jon produce the MDFF and they do a fantastic job. Excellent communication, well-run and a lot of fun. AMC Classic Marina was the perfect venue for the screenings, providing a really great "film fest" vibe. Thanks for selecting THE OTHERS!

    It's a wonderful festival screened at a beautiful theater in Marina Del Rey. The low price of submission is great for value and the festival responds quickly to submissions.

    I had a great experience at the Marina del Rey Film Festival this year. I am very thankful to Peter Green for showing my music video, and honored to receive an award for best music video. A true love of art drives the people behind this festival, and they continue to give diverse forms of expression a healthy platform. Good work!
