About

Indie Short FestIMDb qualifier Indie Short Fest (ISF-LA) is an LA-based international film competition with monthly live screenings at the Raleigh Studios Hollywood, CA, and a major annual awards event at the same venue.

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 round, all submitted projects are featured in ISF-LA site and social media (with the publication of synopsis, stills and a trailer/teaser) as part of a general promotional action of indie production. The submitter has the option of decline any public highlight, as long as notified ISF-LA, keeping however his project(s) under consideration. These projects are judged by a random team of invited experts from academia and film industry from Los Angeles area, against a high standard of merit. From the pool of official selection, which has a very competitive acceptance rate, ISF-LA chose the nominees and award winners of the season. All of them can add their projects to IMDb. Some of the award-winning projects, selected by the programmers of ISF-LA, are publicly screened in Hollywood at the end of each round.

Some of the award winners can be invited for joining the exclusive streaming TV channel from our associate Independent Shorts Awards.

Indie Short Fest is a verified Gold Filmfreeway film festival, an official IMDb Award Listing Qualifier event, and an associate of Independent Shorts Awards and IndieX Film Fest.

Submissions are accepted through FilmFreeway.filmfreeway-logo-hires-blue-606b5f0f80f5b294d20f16d95ecb6e7c
