The future of storytelling. It's all about the story, the experience and empowering storytellers.

We're 2 festivals in one, iHollywood Film Fest and the "I Am Awards", both are under the iHollywood Film Fest and awarded during the festival. Submissions are judged in a traditional manner with industry professionals. "I Am Awards" are based on energetic frequency. There are many crossovers and surprisingly or perhaps not so surprisingly our best films did well in both categories.

The 2023 iHollywood Film Fest is a multi-day festival with the first day being our iHollywood Summit which is where Mastermind meets Film3 and Web3 with specialty programming geared towards finance, distribution and tools to expand your storytelling and flourish.

In 2023, we’ll have special screenings featuring the winners from the Fullerton School District’s FSD Fest and Film It West Covina - West Covina Film Festival.

Day 1: iHollywood Summit. BitAngels Hollywood Pitch event with ai, blockchain and web3 companies pitching to investors followed by iHollywood pitch event with qualifying film pitches to film financiers. They’ll be in the same room and you’ll be able to meet and mingle with them throughout the day. Opening night films and party.

Day 2: Movie Marathon

Day 3: Movie Marathon, Awards and Closing Night Party.

Live screenings will be in a movie marathon, with parties and awards. Our schedule brings energy to the festival with special experiences planned for festival attendees.

iHollywood Film Fest was the 1st film festival to award NFTs and is a member of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce and a member of the Entertainment, Arts & Media plus Tourism committees. The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce is the awarding organization of the Hollywood Walk of Fame and the historic Hollywood sign.

    How wonderful it was to have film, My Life with Rosie, accepted by the iHollywood Film Fest Committee! Additionally…….how fantastic for the festival to be held at the TCL Chinese Theatre in the middle of Hollywood. Thank you to all those who made this festival happen.

    I really want to like this festival. It was great to screen at the historic Chinese Theater. But the festival wasn’t all that awesome, otherwise. The program was a weird mix of films. Didn’t seem curated. Just thrown together. There was no one to check us in. Our block started 30 minutes late. There was no Q&A afterwards. And no lights or photographer at the step and repeat. They also required a DCP which cost even more out of pocket. My advice is save your money and apply to a different festival.
