The COMEDY LOS ANGELES SEPTEMBER 2017 FEEDBACK Film Festival gave our audiences the best of comedic short movies from around the world.

The theme of the festival was “RESET”.

Every film showcased was about a situation that was about a character(s) needing to start over again.

The first half of the SEPTEMBER 2017 FEEDBACK Los Angeles Film Festival featured a showcase of the best COMEDY short films from around the world.

The crowd was very active for our 4th venture to Los Angeles in the FEEDBACK Film Festival format. The crowd of 182 people (and 1 dog) sure seemed to like the films too. It’s a great feeling when you see such a positive and insightful moderation that occurred when we discussed this COMEDY lineup of films.

We attempted to give the audience eight different types of romance and comedy shorts from all around the world. The topic of GENDER came up repeatedly during the discussions as these films all gave us a film that was simply about people attempting to connect with others – no matter what sex, age, race, or in the case of one film – cats, they were. It was refreshing to see such a diverse audience all connecting on the same films.

See you at the festivals.

– Matthew Toffolo
