In light of the international situation regarding the COVID-19 virus, the 2020 edition of LA Festival of cinema has been postponed from its original date. 

After months of hard work, we are excited to announce that our 2020 & 2021 edition now goes online with screening the amazing selection from both editions!

APRIL 15-17, 2021


Let's celebrate the diversity of international cinema in the city that has been continuously shaping this industry and art form since the beginning of its history. LA Festival of Cinema aspires to showcase the newest talent in the independent film industry, and create an event where films of different backgrounds can provide entertainment for anyone who's a fan of cinema.


Downtown Independent

The movie theater that sits at 251 S. Main Street is one of Los Angeles’ greatest treasures. Housing film festivals, non-profit events and performance artists alike, the Downtown Independent has a long history as a community cinema.

This venue elevates the work of women, queer/trans/non-binary communities, sex-positive people, communities of color, international filmmakers and independent thinkers.
