"One of my favorite film festivals ... a filmmaker-friendly festival filled with inspiring films, talented filmmakers, and insightful panels... plus nightly events hosted for filmmakers to meet, eat, and greet. All that and you can't beat Palm Springs during this season. Can't wait to submit my next film!"

"AmDocs is professionally organized, provides amazing host families, and has relevant panels. This was my 2nd time screening films at AmDocs & I always feel so welcome & valued as a filmmaker. Thank you & your team for your hospitality while attending both festivals. Palm Springs is a lovely city."

"AmDocs was a great experience. The venue was beautiful, maximizing the experience of the film. All involved were more than kind and hospitable. I was screened with a film that had a similar topic to mine, which created a wonderful networking experience."

"The fest has become renowned for its film fund competition, including a top prize of up to $50,000. ... AmDocs also has a documentary alliance with several festivals (notably in Europe and Latin America), thus facilitating a global “theatrical release” experience for select films."
