The theme of the June 2018 HORROR/THRILLER FEEDBACK Film Festival in Los Angeles was “Sins”. Every single film was about a world and/or characters dealing with sins and conflicts of the past.

This is the festival that I’ll always remember because I consider it the turning point of the Los Angeles FEEDBACK Film Festival. It wasn’t the easiest event to get through for the crew, but they grinded it out and produced the best night we’ve had so far in Los Angeles. The feedback videos are great (make sure you watch them), put together by our new editor Kimberly Villarruel, who was the MVP of the night.

In Toronto, the great team (lead by Mary Cox & Kierston Drier) had been a part of the festival for over 2 years before they were brought on in a moderator & leadership capacity. So they were able to witness many events, and see how they can achieve success despite the muliple conflicts that can occur when producing an event where the audience’s comments are the only thing that really matter

In Los Angeles, it was a fast process for all of them. Shepsut Wilson, who moderates the festival in Los Angeles, only attended two events before she took the mic to lead the discussion. So she’s literally been doing and learning on the job at the same time. And our Festival Director’s Rachel Elder, and Natasha Levy worked at a few events in a 12 month span before they took the leadership duties. So the first few events were definitely a work in progress and learning curve for everybody.

Then June 2018 appeared and we found out what the Los Angeles team were made of. They demand perfection in a festival with so many moving parts that perfection is impossible to obtain. But attempting to get to that goal is what turns something good into something great.

Before I get too “motivational speaker”, I simply wanted to say that we have arrived in Los Angeles and we are saying put forever! With a team like this, we have nowhere to go but up for a long, long time.

See you at the festivals.
