The 15th annual Los Angeles International Children’s Film Festival, scheduled for April-May 2020, is now postponed due to the coronavirus public-health crisis. We will reschedule as soon as we are allowed to reserve theater space in a safe setting suitable for the festival's audience, hopefully in early fall (the September date listed to the right of this box is tentative).

Once we get there, presenting around 100 short films from around the world—animation, live action, and documentary films—organized for different age groups. Select filmmakers and actors are present for Q&A sessions after each screening.

The festival has a history of showcasing talent and moving careers forward, with more than 70 of our animators and filmmakers going on to work for major studios, and more than 30 becoming part of Oscar-winning teams. We are very proud of our alumni!

    This was one of the first festivals to accept my film, thank you! They are so nice and this really looks like a lot of fun. Please check them out if you're in LA. Great opportunity for kids to see my film, that was a goal of mine. Thank you.

    A great festival with great films. There was a great Q & A that followed the screenings. I was honored to be part of this festival and will submit again.

  • I was very happy to have my film screened at this festival and was very sad that I was not able to attend, but they have been kind to me from the beginning and the communication was great. They have been super helpful and kind and I was very grateful for the whole experience!

    This was a great festival and it was fantastic having our film screen for all the kids. Proud to have our film among all the very enjoyable films. The kids were so engaged and had wonderful questions at the Q&A.
