The 5th Annual Hollywood Weekly Magazine Film Festival is scheduled for November 3, 2018 to be held at iconic Raleigh Studios in the heart of Hollywood, California. Due to the call for greater diversity, as illustrated with the record breaking success of Black Panther, major producers are now looking for films with strong women characters, and stories that reflect ethnic cultures from other parts of the world.

Hollywood Weekly Magazine Film Festival is a leading platform where all filmmakers are welcome. Now in our 5th year, our festival is intended for filmmakers from countries around the world. We are honored to work with emerging filmmakers! Our festival is actually on a major studio lot, and provides added value by being the only Hollywood festival that also publish our own Hollywood Weekly Magazine. The value you gain from our magazine creates opportunities for additional exposure for filmmakers who wish to advertise. If you missed the gala last year, please take a look at our website at:

This years event is scheduled to coincide with the week-long American Film Market taking place nearby in Santa Monica. Since many film and TV executives will be in Los Angeles our festival creates a timely opportunity to showcase your best work to the best group of potential buyers.

All submissions will receive complementary coverage by industry professionals. Our best reviewed films will be screened at Raleigh Studios and featured in Hollywood Weekly Magazine. All cast members, filmmakers, directors and producers are invited to meet with major Hollywood producers who will be attending our event. Our goal is to help you sell your work or find an agent to represent your material.

Producers from our most popular film submissions will be interviewed in Hollywood Weekly Magazine. All films are evaluated by our committee for screening at our 5th Annual Hollywood Weekly Magazine Film Festival to be scheduled for November 3, 2018.

More prizes and awards will be added as we are currently seeking sponsors. If you are interested in sponsorship opportunities, please email:
