The 6th Annual Hollywood Weekly Magazine Film Festival is scheduled for November 2, 2019 to be held at the iconic Raleigh Studios in Hollywood, California. Due to the call for greater diversity, major producers are now looking for films with strong female characters, and stories that reflect ethnic cultures from other parts of the world.

Hollywood Weekly Magazine's Film Festival is a leading platform where all filmmakers are welcome. Now in our 6th year, our film festival is established and attracts filmmakers from countries around the world. We are honored to work with emerging filmmakers! Our festival is held on an actual major studio lot, and provides added value by being the only Hollywood Film Festival that also publishes our own Hollywood Magazine. The value you gain from our magazine creates opportunities for additional exposure for filmmakers who wish to advertise. Hollywood Weekly Magazine is distributed in 622 major US cities and sold in Barnes and Noble and Books A Million stores across the nation. Hollywood Weekly Magazine is also distributed in print internationally in Brazil, Italy, Germany, Holland, India, Middle East, Israel, Singapore and Switzerland.

News For Novelists, Screenwriters and Filmmakers:

Beginning with our 6th Annual HWM Film Festival, we will include a new category that provides authors the opportunity to submit their books for review and inclusion in our film festival. Novels will be selected by our panel of judges specifically looking for strong characters, interesting and unique plotlines, and authors with a cinematic vision. All qualities that Studio Executives seek when choosing novels to option into film and television projects.

All attendees are invited to walk our red carpet and interview with the press. Our best reviewed films will be screened at Raleigh Studios and featured in Hollywood Weekly Magazine. All cast members, filmmakers, directors and producers are invited to meet with major Hollywood producers who will be in town for the annual American Film Market taking place during the same week, and invited to attend our event. Our goal is to help you sell your work or find an agent to represent your material.

Producers from our most popular film submissions will be interviewed in Hollywood Weekly Magazine. All films are evaluated by our committee for screening at our 6th Annual Hollywood Weekly Magazine Film Festival scheduled for November 2, 2019.

More prizes and awards will be added as we are currently seeking sponsors. If you are interested in sponsorship opportunities, please email:
