Of course, we think LA Comedy Shorts is pretty great. But don’t take our word for it:
"I wanted to write…and thank you one more time for the chance to be a part of the
festival. Now, especially in the wake of it, seeing the press we're getting and contacts…
it’s clear this experience has been invaluable to mine and Raymond's careers. In short, it's
been a Game Changer." – Ryan Gould, Filmmaker (Sex Ed and BFFs)
"Good programming, great screening attendance and terrific parties! …By far it's one of
the best I've ever been to!" – Justin Lutsky, Filmmaker (Action Hero’s Guide to Saving
"The whole weekend people kept asking me if I was nervous about the winners being
announced at the awards ceremony and I would honestly answer, "No, I feel like I've
already won." Just being a finalist exceeded any expectations and got me in touch with
people I know will help me further my career." - Michelle Beakler, 2010 Screenwriting
Finalist (“All For Love”)
