At The Los Angeles Art-house Film Festival our goal is to search and pay tribute to those indie film makers and writers who do not always receive the notoriety they deserve. LA ART HOUSE takes pride in not falling victim to the tainted politics that some of the more commercialized film festivals engage in. Submissions are judged with an open mind and the names attached to the project do not enhance it’s chance of being a success in our festival. Films will be assessed by multiple award winning producers, directors, actors and writers. Awards will be given out among the 8 categories followed by several screenings. We look forward to a great season of LAAFF!

First place films will win an award and cash prizes and will be screened at the festival in March 2023.

There will also be certificates awarded to runner-ups in each category
