Look, we won’t mince words: today is the official late submissions deadline for the 2016 LA Film Festival. So if you’re a filmmaker, that means you have mere hours to lock those Final Cut Pro timelines, hit “export” and get your submissions in.**
Time may be short, but that doesn’t mean you should throw your hands up and say “oh well, maybe next year.” No! Slam a can or two of your energy drink of choice and push through.
Because whether your movie is an insightful social issues documentary, low-key character study or gory genre flick, the fact is: we want to see your film.
Don’t believe us? Well, just let LA Film Festival Head Programmer Roya Rastegar and her team explain the festival’s selection process and what they look for when selecting which films play in the festival.
**Are you a Member of Film Independent? If so, good news! There’s yet another late deadline specifically for Members, which extends until February 10.
