IMDb qualifier Indie Short Fest (ISF-LA) is an LA-based international film competition with bimonthly 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 an interview or to provide the festival with a BTS or award acceptance video statement to be published on ISF-LA website. And also to join the exclusive streaming TV channel from our partner Independent Shorts Awards on https://xerb.tv/channel/isa.
Finally, award winners and nominees can order the ISF-LA official trophy.
Submissions are accepted through FilmFreeway.
