LA Independent Women Film Awards focuses on international and U.S. film and script projects of all genres.

Every season, the IMDb qualifying fest recognizes projects with a female producer, director, lead actress, writer, cinematographer, editor, composer, etc.

All topics related to women's thoughts, women's fate, life conditions, women's views and so on are welcome to participate.

All the winners will be promoted through various online magazines in California and can request to receive certificates and laurels. All the winners can request for screening through our festival.

Our mission is designed to help create a platform for our filmmakers to be seen, but more importantly, get them the industry exposure to help sustain their craft for many years to come.

The members of our jury will be award winning artists working in media from all over the world. All the award winners can request to be a jury member of a new edition of the festival in order to vote for one of the categories.

LA Independent Women Film Awards is an outstanding event for promoting female artists working in media from all over the world.

    What an honour being selected for La Independent Women's Festival! While COVID put a damper on international travel, we were so proud to have Smile: The Series recognised for selection.
