“Many thanks for the lovely tribute to my films. I thought the audience's reactions to the films were terrific and their questions always intelligent. It was a very moving experience for me.”
PAUL MAZURSKY − Writer/Director

“What a great time we had in Ventura, Lorenzo. It was a memorable night, special on so many levels. Thank you for bringing all of us together.”
GEORGE SEGAL − Actor

“It has been nearly a month since I saw the film, “Memories of Overdevelopment,“ and I am still thinking about it. The film is amazingly visual and remarkably original. I loved the way it assembled segments of magically-manifesting collage art with historical footage and personal story, creating a film that is often stunning, sometimes startling, but always thoroughly fascinating. I am so glad it was included in the film series.”
JULIE MAECHLER − Ventura resident

“The Ventura Film Society is a top notch organization with excellent presentation and a varied program with great filmmakers. I highly recommend it to students, future filmmakers and the general public.”
RICHARD HALSEY − FILM EDITOR − (Oscar winner for "Rocky" )
