    If you've ever put your heart and soul in a script, you know COMMUNICATION is everything. This film festival's communication, exceeded all expectations! Thank you for the selection! Would recommend this film festival to everyone.

  • As the screenwriter for the script, Crash Site, I was honored that it was included as an Official Selection and you chose this powerful story of a strong woman defying the odds to investigate a deadly airline crash... almost in our own backyard. Thank you.

  • Thank you very much for having “Oregon’s Water Colors” participate in The Maria Del Rey Festival, what a thrill! As an artist all I can think is I’m so happy when somebody will see the film and experience the natural beauty of Oregon. Thank you for honoring our film as a selection. The part where people might get a few minute quarantine break and watch some of Oregon's Nature & Steelhead Fishing in SoCal & beyond is pretty cool for this artist. We are simply #VeryGrateful. Special Thanks for the effort Peter and John made to not make the Awards ceremony happen (That was Fun!) And Peter the phone call notification is first class, made my day, week, month, quarantine! The Roku showing is great addition too. Good Luck with Silicone Valley and future fests, Best Wishes & Thanks again, Stay safe, be safe, with gratitude, John.

    This is the first festival I've done remotely thanks to COVID. I must say the organizers did an amazing job putting this together. Their communication with the filmmakers was outstanding especially if there was a last minute change. I'm definitely looking forward to entering again next year. My overall experience was better than expected.
