About Us

Indie Short Fest is an LA-based international film competition with special screenings and Q&A all year round and a red carpet annual awards event.

Every month, Indie Short Fest establishes a comprehensive hierarchy of the most important films in the festival circuit, awarding a considerable number of projects in several different categories. A MONTHLY breakdown, listed by IMDb, that allows you to be, at the same time, in a TRADITIONAL ANNUAL FESTIVAL competing for a spot among the world’s best short films of the year to be screened in Los Angeles.

Besides the red carpet screenings and Q&A all year round, Indie Short Fest qualifies directly the monthly top award-winning projects for the annual event, to celebrate in average over 80 films, the best of the year.
