Showcase your film at the Los Angeles Independent Film Festival! This is the home of creativity, story, craft: and all things in-between. LAIFF is focused on bringing as much value as possible to the filmmaking world. We pride ourselves in bringing forth films ranging across genre, budget, length, subject matter, and medium. We've built this festival with the intention of bridging the beauty of high budget and low budget, in order to showcase the incredible work being done in both sectors, and to introduce the film industry personnel making the magic happen in both worlds.

The Los Angeles Independent Film Festival is filled with value for filmmakers, screenwriters, directors, producers, actors and film enthusiasts alike! Across the festival, we have education resources, panels, talks, masterclasses, tools, giveaways, networking opportunities, distribution opportunities and of course: blocks of films made by this years incredible official selections, finalists and award winners.
