Overall Rating
  • The Marina del Rey Film Festival was a fantastic experience for us. It was organized, the venue of the AMC Marina Theatres was great, and the awards ceremony was nice, which included appetizers. Peter Greene, Jon Gursha, and Eric Vollweiller are wonderful to work with. I definitely recommend submitting to the Marina del Rey Film Festival, and I plan on submitting my future films to this festival as well.

    Marina Del Ray was an excellent film festival! Very memorable, and I am happy to say I am a proud alumni of this festival and I can't wait to resubmit! Peter Greene is awesome--a true lover of art on film. These guys truly know what its like to make great films and show then to a live audience. A great experience, thank you Peter! See you next year

    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.
