    A cool little festival and I'm proud to have our project officially selected. However, win or lose I do feel every festival should give feedback on all projects, good or bad. Filmmakers carefully select their festivals, spending a lot of their time picking the right ones, so I do believe festivals should do the same with getting back to each filmmaker on a personal basis regardless of the volume of submissions.

    I'm a little upset. My film was marked as semi finalist so I added that to my IMDB. A few weeks later I found out they removed me from Los Angeles Cinefeet IMDB page and took away my semi finalist nomination. Pretty shitty!! And also they have many categories listed on their rewards section but then give out very little awards and they are awards not even listed on their awards category. Categories:

    Response from festival:

    Hello Israel. We did not removed your work from IMDB date base. Also, you are still a semi-finalist. Ask IMDB what is going on. Next time, before you place a bad review, CONTACT FESTIVAL FIRST so we can help you. Cheers.
