  • "I love Cinema Libre! Not only are they great distributors, they're like family. Who would've thought that a film about the homeless community on Skid Row would get a two week theatrical release at the ArcLight Hollywood. I urge every filmmaker to work with them."

    - Agi Orsi, Producer of LOST ANGELS: SKID ROW IS MY HOME
  • "Releasing an indie feature is harder than ever now - but Cinema Libre will collaborate with you, listen to you, and most importantly, be honest with you. I am very happy that Cinema Libre distributed 'disFIGURED' "

    - Glenn Gers, Writer/Director of DISFIGURED
  • "This is not your run-of-the-mill Hollywood company; this is a down-to-Earth group of individuals who truly care.
    Any filmmaker with a social message to share by way of cinema can truly do no better. If CLS didn't exist, they'd have to be invented."

    - Eric Shapiro, Writer-Director of LIVING THINGS: A VEGAN & MEAT DEBATE
