Winners of the 20th edition

LA Indies festival was created by the committee of LA Indies magazine of Hollywood with the intention of creating breakthroughs in the career of talented filmmakers in the film industry. It is important to encourage indie filmmakers to continue working on their craft and create groundbreaking indie films in these challenging times. Our festival will provide the right tools for each official selection to create further opportunities to market, feature, screen and distribute film projects through our partners in media. We understand how challenging it is to make an indie film and we would like to discover and promote indie artists from all over the globe.
