Welcome to Indie Short Fest

Indie Short FestIndie Short Fest (ISF-LA) is an LA-based international film competition with bimonthly live screenings in different venues of Los Angeles. Also, it has an annual major live screening and awards event in North Hollywood, California.

ISA-LA is looking for independent projects from all genres, particularly low or no-budget ones, as well as from all countries, especially from those traditionally underrepresented in the global film industry.

Each month, the submitted projects are privately screened and judged by a random team of invited experts from academia and film industry from Los Angeles area, against a high standard of merit. The monthly award-winning projects are automatically admitted to being screened and competing in the respective categories at the annual event. Some of them, selected by the programmers of ISF-LA, are publicly screened in Los Angeles at the end of each two monthly rounds.

Our journey begins here.

Submissions exclusively via Filmfreeway.
