Los Angeles CineFest is an online and live international event. We accept local, national and international films and scripts. Each month film industry specialists watch films and videos, read scripts, give notes and scores. Each month Los Angeles CineFest announce semi-finalists, finalists, and winners.

We show work online with submitter approval only. Once a year we screen selected work at the live event in Los Angeles. We announce script, photography, score and poster winners as well.

Enjoy Q and A with filmmakers after screenings.
Next Red Carpet and Awards Ceremony is scheduled for Jan 2019
