    I had an awful time at this fest in 2009. My music video was accepted and I flew to Los Angeles to be there with it. At the screening my video wasn’t even screened. Afterwards I told the staff at the screening that my video wasn’t projected. They shrugged and walked away. This festival has a long way to go.

    Had an awesome time at this festival- had my film screen to a packed house in Brooklyn- a built-out warehouse space with around 600 people there silently watching the short film blocks unfold.

    Talked to the fest organizers and learned they finance the whole festival, from NY to Miami to LA to London with credit cards. They are hungry, broke and full of passion. Who else would put together a film festival that is exclusive to self-financed filmmakers? It was an honor to participate in the community- best experience I’ve ever had.

    Recommend anyone to do a simple google search for the festival to hear the tons of positive feedback. Maybe they fixed the kinks from year one?

    I had an issue with this festival as my music video didn’t play correctly/or at all. I supplied them with the requested type of file, but you would think playback problems would be dealt with before exhibition. It didn’t matter as there was really nobody around watching the music videos anyway. I’m just glad I didn’t make a big deal of it and invite people to see it (not play.)

    I attended a friend’s screening here, and was very disappointed in the fest and embarrassed for my buddy. He flew all the way from Penn. with his wife to screen his feature, and there were about a total of 10 people in the semi-large theater. The street of the theater felt like a ghost town (it’s right near a shady bar), and the lobby was near vacant. It looked like they had two people on Staff and the screening played more like a typical movie screening, then a FESTIVAL one. In fact, not much about this whole night felt like a festival. The guy who runs the thing seems passionate about what he’s doing, and his heart is probably in the right place. But he has a long way to go still.

    Had a really bad time here with my film last year. Completely disorganized. No one to meet the filmmakers at the venue in downtown LA. No one introduced the filmmakers to the audiences. Unbelievable. My friends just walked in the theater without paying. No one was even at the door! Definitely a cut-rate outfit.
