“This was the best one yet!” – Said the two Festival Directors who wrote me (in separate texts) minutes after the 3rd Los Angeles FEEDBACK Film Festival event of 2018 was completed.

It was definitely the best audience so far! Lots of engagement in the near sell out crowd of over 200 attendees.

The theme of the even was TRUTH VS LIES. Every film had situations where the truth was not happening and people venturing out to find it.

This was a night of the best of drama short from around the world in the first half (Japan, India, UK) and a selection of the best Under 5 minute short films from the United States in the 2nd half.

The MVP of this event was actually 2,200 miles away in Toronto while the event was happening: Our editor John Johnson. We was able to put together 11 feedback videos for each film in over 1 hour of conversations that moderator Shepsut Wilson had with the audience.

This was the first time we ever attempted the Under 5 Minute lineup in Los Angeles and it definitely won’t be the last. The crowd seemed to really like this concept.

Three festivals down in Los Angeles for 2018, and nine more to go. And LA has not even seen the best yet! Some amazing films coming this Spring and Summer.

See you at the festivals.

The LOS ANGELES JANUARY 2018 FEEDBACK Film Festival gave our audiences the best of CRIME & ACTION/ADVENTURE short movies from around the world.

The theme of the festival was “BREAKING EXPECTATIONS”.

Every film showcased was about a situation that was about a character(s) leaping out of their expected ideal.

January 2018 was the beginning of everything in Los Angeles for the FEEDBACK Film Festival. The first event of the monthly festival format. We plan on doing a festival every single month in LA from the rest of the existence of humanity!

There is a new management team for the FEEDBACK Festival in Los Angeles. One of our main workers fell sick with a stomach flu on the day, and one of our camera operators car broke down on the way to the cinema. So LA Feedback Coordinator Rachel Elder basically ran the festival all by herself – on her first time out at that. The Regal Cinemas manager said that what she pulled off was truly amazing. She was definitely the MVP of the night and we at WILDsound headquarters are truly grateful.

Shepsut Wilson was the moderator of the evening and did a fantastic job on her first time out. This will be the first of many for the talented performer who also puts in a lot of effort and research to make sure the best moderation for each film gets executed.

So we are on our way in Los Angeles. We showcased 7 shorts from all over the world on our first FEEDBACK Film Festival of 2018.

See you at the festivals.
