Welcome to the Los Angeles International New Wave Film Festival! The Los Angeles New Wave International Film Festival was founded by and for independent filmmakers who seek to recognize the craft of this century’s filmmakers and storytellers from around the globe. As the world gets smaller, and our ability to connect with global cultures becomes easier, we are bringing the world together through the art of film. Providing a young, fresh and exciting perspective to today’s world of cinema, we seek to showcase and honor innovative and exciting voices in the American and international film communities. With nine categories, our goal is to recognize a large and diverse selection of films from all genres and from all over the world. After exploding onto the festival scene in 2010, New Wave International is quickly becoming an important platform for the next wave of provocative and innovative films. Films and scripts are evaluated by a panel of industry professionals, and independent filmmakers.
