Filmmaker Testimonials from 2010

Thank you very much for hosting and creating an incredibly worthwhile 2010 LA Shorts Fest. The festival was such an enjoyable and valuable event, I was inspired and developed quality relationships with fellow filmmakers. Those relationships extended to me producing and directing a short, made with the help of LA Shorts Fest filmmakers inspired by the opening night film program.

I look forward to staying connected and attending future LA Shorts Fest programs. Please keep me posted on any symposiums that you organize, as I am very interested.

Thank you for inviting us to LA Shorts Fest. I had the best screening of our entire festival run at LA Shorts Fest. It was a very satisfying experience... and in my home town to boot! I enjoyed all the festival activities, the venue, and the people involved were very cool all across the board.
