Feedback from previous years
Hey, Louisville's International Festival of Film. I see you're going to be virtual again this year. My family and I attended last year and had a fantastic time with all the various films. I'll be back.
“The Louisville’s International Festival of Film is a terrific venue for up and coming indie filmmakers. Louisville isn’t just for bourbon, purebreds, or baseball bats anymore!
Actress / Director ”Silk”
”It was a real honor to have gained selection to this year’s LIFF”
“Thank you very much for screening our film “Das Falsche Herz” at your festival in Louisville Kentucky. Your festival will be the first to screen our film outside of its production country…you can imagine, that we feel very honored, to introduce our film to the American audience. A few days ago I had a look at the whole festival program. It’s very impressive!”
With kind regards from Austria,
“Let me say how proud and grateful I am that my film was included and as a winner in 2015 LIFF.”
“Jes and Lora”
Thank you, Conrad. I have to say of all 19 festivals I attended last year, yours was in my top 3. The good people of Louisville, your staff, and your events really left a lasting impression (amazing city). I never got a chance to thank you for all the good time and hospitality we received at last year’s festival. Thank you! Until next year, hopefully.
“The Louisville International Festival of Film helped my no-budget Australian short film find an audience internationally – words can not describe how valuable a platform that is, and they have my unyielding support.”
“It was the best days of my life in Louisville.”

“Many thanks again for a wonderful time in Louisville. It is great festival you organized and we were honored to be a part of it, much less to receive Best Feature.
“On the Wing”
“Louisville’s International Festival of Film is an exciting “Go To” festival and I enjoyed my time there. It’s one of the best for film makers from all over the world to screen their films. You’ll love it too”

“Thank you very much for including ‘Our Father’ in your Festival this year and for honoring it with such a special award! So pleased that Michael Gross could be there.”
