LA FESTIVAL OF CINEMA 2020 & 2021
in parternship with FILMPIXS
Thank you all for being part of the online 2020 & 2021 edition of LA Festival of Cinema!
Submissions for the 2022 edition are now open!
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.
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.
