The 15th annual Los Angeles International Children’s Film Festival happens in March-April 2020. We're looking for new, imaginative, and inventive short films from animators and filmmakers of any age that speak to our young and family audience.
After two days in Santa Monica in March, we will screen films in Part II of the festival, April 2020 at WonderCon at the Anaheim Convention Center. Looking forward to our 11th year at WonderCon!
Overall, 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.
Admission is free for everyone to all screenings.
The festival has a history of showcasing talent and moving careers forward, with more than 100 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!
