There is an episode about this festival in our archives as we talk about the audience and all the great films we showcased at this event.

The theme of the August 2018 DRAMA/COMEDY FEEDBACK Film Festival in Toronto was “The Self”.

Each film was about something an individual being themselves and the consequences that come with that.

Los Angeles just went VIRAL. We filled up a 250 seat cinema and had the entire crowd talking about the various films we showed this month. Lively crowd. Lots of conversation about the 1st half DRAMA shorts and the “sexy” 2nd half COMEDY shorts.

3 festivals left in 2018. Make sure you attend. Have some amazing films coming up.

See you at the festivals.

The theme of the August 2018 ROMANCE & SCI-FI FEEDBACK Film Festival in Los Angeles was “Human Connection”. Every character on all of these presented films were looking to connect with someone else. Sometimes our themes are riddled in complications and confusions – but this festival is as simple as people wanting to connect. And we used to distinct movie genres to do it in Sci-Fi and Romance.

Them MVP of our festival night was our editor/mic handler Kimberly Villaruel. We had some technical issues where the wireless mics stopped working. So we only had one working mic as the other 2 kept popping. Kimberly was able to fix it in post-production without much angst. A true talent and someone to watch out for. She has a bright future ahead of her.

Eight months into our monthly Los Angeles Festival experiment and we’re doing very well. Starting to obtain a nice regular crowd and people seem to really like what we’re doing.

See you at the festivals.
