Los Angeles CineFest is an international event. We accept local, national and international films and scripts. Film industry specialists watch films and videos, read scripts, give notes and scores.
Once a year we screen selected work at the live event in Los Angeles.
Enjoy The Red Carpet, Awards Ceremony, Q and A with filmmakers after screenings.

Starting January 1, 2019, Los Angeles CineFest will no longer be an online film festival. Our festival will now compose of Live Screenings, followed by an Awards Event for our top selections. We will still award selections with "Semi-Finalist" or "Finalist" titles through the year. ONLY films, scripts and other forms of art marked as "SELECTED" will be presented at the live event in January 2020.
