Watch the Audience FEEDBACK Videos:
“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.
