    Jon Gursha festival director and Peter Greene Program Director provided an incredible reception and atmosphere for the independent filmmaker, programming over 300 films over one week at the Howard Hughes Cinemark18&XD in Los Angeles. My film The Accompanist won the Grand Prize - Best Feature Film and I am so grateful for their attention, care and encouragement provided by these two gentlemen and the festival which truly honors the best in independent film. Thank you Jon and Peter!

    What an incredible festival to have the World Premiere of our feature film GAM CAM GRRL. To see it on the big screen projected from a DCP in a state of the art Cinemark Theater with an appreciative audience is a joy no amount of words could describe. All participating filmmakers are given an all-access pass and are encouraged to see as many of the screenings as possible. This along with the opening night party creates a sense of comaraderie among the filmmakers and this spirit continues throughout the festival all the way to the closing night awards ceremony. Peter and Jon are the perfect hosts and create a welcoming and supportive atmosphere for everyone involved. I highly recommend submitting to this festival and I hope to be back with more films in the future.

    Jon and Peter were great and very accommodating. We enjoyed the variety of films presented. It was a great experience. Our film, Kandace Queen won best inspirational short film. We also had the opportunity to network with other filmmakers.
