LA Festival of Cinema

LA Festival of Cinema was established in 2019 to showcase the newest talents of the independent film industry and create a cinematic event with films of various genres and styles. Taking place in the city that has been shaping the film industry since the beginning of its history, the LA Festival of Cinema aspires to highlight emerging artists and filmmakers using the power of independent cinema.

Our diverse screening program is proof that we welcome submissions of all types and budgets and by filmmakers of different backgrounds.

All filmmakers regardless of experience, country of origin, budget or background are welcome to submit their films. We always create film screening programmes that promote diversity and show us different parts of the world.

LA Festival of Cinema is organised by HFP, a pioneer organisation that runs Film Festivals and other events showcasing and championing ideas of diversity. Through our global series of film Festivals that spread over 13 countries, we open the path to voices with a compelling story to share. Our main mission is to honour independent cinema and establish a network of artists eager to join forces and spread their work across all nations. HF runs 25 film Festivals worldwide.
