Venice Beach Film Festival is a New Beginning. In its first year the film festival will encompass a diverse lineup of screenings, panels and events activated across multiple venues in Venice Beach, CA.

Championing independent filmmakers and introducing new audiences to their work is the heart of our mission. We will do this by providing them with educational, financial and networking opportunities. VBFF will create a cultural institution that brings new business, new opportunities and New Beginnings to Venice, Ca.

On March 21st we will screen a selection of films about New Beginnings.
