The Los Angeles Guerrilla Film Festival is setting out on a discovery to find the most innovative film makers of our time. With the indie film market being at an all time high we are searching for the guerrilla film makers that have a story to tell. We want to shed light on your story and give you a platform to showcase your work through the film festival pipeline. We understand what a challenge it is to complete a film and show it to the world. We want to spotlight the films that might not get the opportunities at the more commercialized film festivals and prove that you don't need a star name attached to your project to capture the hearts of your viewers. The LA Guerrilla Film Festival has 8 categories to serve your specific project. Including a screenplay competition. Please join us in the quest for great stories and fantastic films as we kick off our first season of the Los Angeles Guerrilla Film Festival. 

All first place winners will receive an award and will screen at the Acme Theater in Los Angeles CA. on October 28th. 2017.

The LAGFF will not return any submission materials.

Each submission must have its own submission fee.

Please put the title of the entry and your FilmFreeway tracking code on all submission materials, including the DVD. Media files (such as .mov and .avi files) can be emailed to
