About the LA Femme International Film Festival


LA Femme International Film Festival is a premier festival, listed as one of the 10 best festivals to attend, which focuses on platforming women filmmakers “content by women for global audiences". Our Festival was created in 2005, when it became apparent that there was a need to enhance women behind the camera as Directors, Producers, and Writers.


As LA Femme moves into the it's fifteenth (15 ) year of programing, it plans to expand its platform so that more women in the industry and from around the world can have the benefit of taking their film to the next level through increased distribution outlets, more key positions in the entertainment industry and more recognition as artistic creators emerging as leaders in the industry.


Our goal is to remain a step ahead through exemplary programming, networking, and panel events. A classic professional atmosphere will create a sense of ‘opportunity’ for participants. LA Femme International Film Festival is “By Women for Everyone.”


Our categories include: features, documentaries, shorts, animation, music videos, commercials, web series, screenplays and tv pilot teleplays.


There is something for everyone.
