So many special touches! This festival clearly loves its filmmakers. Met so many great people that I've continued to stay in touch with.

A small festival with such high quality short films; really excellent thoughtful programming.

This festival separates itself from other L.A. festivals by being intimate and having great programming, featuring some of the top films on the festival circuit this year. The screenings take place in a beautiful theater in East Hollywood that feels like a hidden lair.

Hands down one of my favorite fests! The team puts so much care into this event. The quality of the films in every program was astounding. They provide great graphics which makes the job of promoting your screening easy.

 Truly loved being a part of this festivall! The coordinators were helpful, gracious, & they added a real personal touch to every detail of the event. I got to see some of the best shorts I've seen at any festival before or since, so the whole experience was a really inspiring one that I would definitely recommend to any other filmmaker.
