    Great festival. My feature film Blue Line Station had a large audience. Thank you so much to Peter and Sandie for welcoming our film with such kindness. Looking forward to next year!

    This is a first year fest with a very conscientious programmer and staff. They worked hard to market the festival in a competitive market, west Los Angeles. I commend them for that! The owners of the festival came to the screenings and said hello each time! The theater was a nice theater, however, the entire mall around the theater was under construction so the overall venue left something to be desired. I went to three sets of screenings and the films were hit and miss. One screening featured high quality films and had a good audience. Another screening of shorts was a bit odd because it was only 3 shorts with two normal length shorts of about 10 minutes and one film, a documentary that was about 60 or 70 minutes. I expected to see more films and was a little disappointed with only three films showing. The third screening had about 9 films with 3 good ones and 3 mediocre ones and 2 poor films and 1 that was quite long (felt long) and was truly bad, not sure how it got a showing. Some poor films are expected, but when it's the longest one, it makes it hard to watch and kind of ruined the overall experience of the other good films in the set. There were networking opportunities and a nice opening night gala at a cool venue with excellent art...very Venice / Playa del Rey atmosphere. Peter, Jon, and Sandie were communicative and that is a huge plus!! I think this fest will grow in stature over time and I would enter again.

    In the first place I felt honoured to be nominated at the festival and incredible happy that my film "Memories of Warsaw" received an award for the Best Foreign Movie. Unfortenately I wasn't able to join you all at the Red Carpet. Robert Webster.

    Silicon Beach Film Festival is an outstanding venture. I applaud their ability to introduce audiences to exciting new works in an amazing venue. Peter was gracious, fun and really helpful. We at Pegbar Studio are honored that our animated short, Freestyle, was selected. Bringing traditional hand drawn animation and story telling techniques together with 3D CGI seems a natural fit for an art form that is increasingly blurring the lines between real and pixel. Thank you for allowing us to be part of the journey, and for bringing the independent creators a stage to showcase their work in the epicenter of the entertainment world.
