The Los Angeles International Film Festival is a film festival for truly independent shorts and features, and aims to become a headline event for micro-budget and no-budget films in North America. LAIFF offers a fantastic opportunity for undiscovered filmmakers to showcase their achievements in the center of the movie making industry.
We’ll screen over 60 features and shorts over 5 days at the Laemmle Monica Film Center, just steps away from the AFM, which runs at the same time.
LAIFF leverages the strength of LA’s independent filmmaking community to put on a fantastic festival complete with networking events and educational sessions. It’s an indie film festival by and for indie filmmakers.
