  • Super well run and great venue! We had a surprising turnout for a Sunday morning 10:00a screening. Very impressive all the way around!

  • I had a blast at this festival throughout its one week run from the kick-off party to the closing award celemony. Jon Gursha and Peter Greene are the great organizers who do it right.

    Great festival, loved it especially as an LA Local. Had a couple of networking events as bookends. The theater was beautiful. Peter and the staff were super friendly and professional and welcoming. It was definitely rewarding...and we won awards :)

    Marina del rey was a wonderful festival Peter and John go out of their way to put together a wonderful event. Our film Kommando 1944 has played around the world and marina del rey holds a special place in our hearts.

    Unfortunately I missed the screening of my film DOUBLE UP as I got sick. But I am indeed grateful that DU was part of this incredible festival. I know it has an amazing theater and screen . The organizer were prompt with communication and I wish them a continuous success for more events to come.
