"I had a wonderful experience dealing with Susy and the IMFF. From start to finish the communication was excellent. I felt like my film was in good hands, and the support was amazing. This year's festival was forced to be online, but I have no doubt the hospitality and networking would have been top-notch had I been able to attend in person in San Diego. Highly recommend joining this family of mobile filmmakers."

Ian Leer, UK | IMFF 2020 Virtual

"A great festival to be apart of! The team is great at communicating and providing opportunities for the filmmakers to share and discuss their film, especially shooting on mobile devices. The line up this year was fantastic, and though we were not able to attend a live event (because of the pandemic) we look forward to meeting everyone in person in future years. If you're a filmmaker who made your movie with a mobile device, this festival is a must!"

Ryan McDonald, Ohio | IMFF 2020 Virtual

"I absolutely loved this festival! Susy Botello does an incredible job hosting and making the festival much more than a film showing. It was inspiring to meet the other filmmakers, presenters, and sponsors and to share in our love for making mobile films."
Alexandra Guillossou, Attended IMFF 2019 from Montana, U.S.A.

"Simply the best. Festival Director Susy goes above and beyond to make filmmakers feel special and valued. Highly recommend this film festival. Attended the weekend long festival in April in San Diego which included screenings, workshops/lectures and a red carpet award ceremony. Will forever remember the experience and taking home third place for my film 'The Actor', many thanks!" - Narelle Nash, Attended IMFF 2018 from Sydney, Australia

“Amazing film festival. Excellent communication in the lead-up. If you're lucky enough to attend, organizer Susy Botello will go out of her way to make sure you have the best film festival experience you could ever expect. Features include great workshops, taking part in filmmaker Q&As, and ample networking opportunities. Susy is a true champion of the smartphone filmmaking community. Don't hesitate to enter!” - Brian Hennings, Attended IMFF 2017 & 2018 from Perth, Australia

“This is the best film festival I ever attended in person. 
Film makers are well treated. 
Susy is a great human being. 
Everyone are super friendly. 
I had a blast attending the film festival screening and award functions. 
RED CARPET treatment of filmmakers is a grand finale!” - Prakash Natarajan, Attended IMFF 2015 & 2018 from Texas, U.S.A.
