LA Film Festival

June 14, 2017 - June 22, 2017


Taking place June 14-22, 2017, the LA Film Festival showcases compelling independent films, TV and episodic work from emerging storytellers, alongside filmmaker-driven studio titles.

The LA Film Festival is a premier platform for new works from emerging and established independent storytellers with unique voices and innovative visions.

The Festival fosters valuable alliances and working relationships between independent artists and the film industry. Signature programs include the Filmmaker Retreat, Coffee Talks, Master Classes, the Spirit of Independence Award, Fast Track (a film financing market) and Diversity Speaks (a forum for content creators from underrepresented communities).

With an attendance of more than 36,000 people, it screens more than 100 feature films. The event also includes world premieres of films such as Disney/Pixar’s Brave, and a variety of panels, seminars, and free outdoor screenings.

In addition to feature films, it also screens short films created by high school students.

Films submitted to the Festival are reviewed by Film Independent’s programming department, which evaluates each film, looking for the best in new American and international cinema.

In 2011, the Festival showed over 200 films, music videos and shorts from over 30 countries.
