LA's Rich and Successful Film Fest (RSFF) is a community-driven festival showcasing the short films of independent, up-and-coming filmmakers based in Los Angeles. RSFF intends to deviate from the norms of competition-driven festivals by providing a platform to other creatives and industry professionals to create a strong and prosperous indie film community in Los Angeles. Whether you're screening at RSFF, are a part of our digital catalogue, or are joining us an audience member, you're a part of our community and we want to see you succeed.
In 2021, the festival's inaugural year proved a success with over 100 submissions and a sold-out crowd of 250+ people. Both new and seasoned filmmakers alike had the opportunity to see their work play on the big screen--some for the first time--or become a part of our digital catalogue and subsequently the RSFF family.
RSFF is not an awards-driven festival. Our goal is to create connective tissue amongst the thoughtful, impassioned, and driven creators of our town. Incorporating as many filmmakers as possible in this network is non-negotiable for us, so as part of our program, we created the RSFF digital catalogue.
In addition to the films you see screened live during the festival, select filmmakers are invited to join the digital catalogue where their work can be permanently showcased and distributed amongst other filmmakers, attendees, and members of the industry. Additionally, filmmakers' social media handles are integrated directly into the catalogue to promote connectivity and community-building beyond the festival.

Submit to us or join us in person. Let's become Rich and Successful together.
FILMMAKERS MUST BE BASED IN LOS ANGELES. If selected, we ask that filmmakers join us for our in-person screening.
Though not mandatory, we strongly encourage submissions that are 25 minutes or less.
