    We submitted our film last year and was accepted. It was a great festival, a great networking experience, and we have already submitted our new film for hopeful entry into this year’s festival..I highly recommend this to ALL filmmakers

    I happened to be at the ArcLight Cinemas last year when the festival was going on and ended up going to see one of the films “Garbage Dreams” instead of the film I went to go see. This documentary was amazing and blew me away.

    I agree with everyone above, our film was accepted two years ago and it is definitely worth it. If your film gets into the festival you get invited to the Hollywood Awards Gala where over 50 A-List stars go and then you get to mingle with them at the after party. It is a mind blowing experience. When I went I got to meet and talk to Clint Eastwood after the show, one of the best moments of my life. I encourage everyone to submit
