    This was an amazing experience! Ajay and Sarah were incredibly helpful with coordinating the marketplace meetings. This is more than just a film festival, and I feel incredibly lucky that my film was selected and I was given the opportunity to network with such influential people in the industry.

    Ajay and Sarah have such a special festival here. We met so many fantastic filmmakers, and the industry meetings were specifically set up for us. The festival was organized and beautifully put together, and the guest speakers were phenomenal. A wonderful experience!

    Ajay and his team have done such a great job with their festival plus industry link up. Normally festivals just show your work, run an award ceremony and put on panels. Not only has Stareable done this, but they have also crucially set up 1:1 meetings with studio execs from sometimes big platforms that have been personalised and in some cases proved fruitful. This is such a rare opportunity and is worth its weight in gold. Don't even hesitate around submitting!!

    This festival was a remarkable, inclusive, accessible, and career leveling up festival. Ajay, with Sarah and the Stareable team, curated and executed film fest magic, brought panelists and industry executives to meet us upcoming filmmakers, and made it all an effortless, smooth, and elevated experience. This festival has raised the bar, by far. I am in immense gratitude for the wonderful experience I had at Stareable LA.
