INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL
Los Angeles, California - United States
October 20 to 23, 2016
The 12th Annual LA Femme International Film Festival , a premier event that celebrates, supports and advances content creation by Women Producers, Writers, and Directors from around the world. The Festival offers a powerful platform in the heart of Beverly Hills and Hollywood for emerging filmmakers and screenwriters to be discovered as well as propel their projects. La Femme has first look distribution partners that continually provide great opportunities for all filmmakers that are accepted to the Festival. In 2015 three winners in the Shorts and TV Pilots categories went on to secure one on one meetings with CBS Entertainment Diversity Division. This year CBS Entertainment Diversity as well as Sony Pictures Diversity has joined La Femme again to offer remarkable opportunities to festival winners.
After daily screenings the excitement continues into the night where filmmakers, entertainment professionals, distribution executives and celebrities mix and mingle all festival long at various networking events, parties and a fabulous closing night gala ceremony. In addition to its stellar lineup of features, documentaries, shorts, screenplay competition, TV Pilot competition and webisodes, LA Femme celebrates the power of the female filmmaker with a series of dynamic panels and seminars featuring some of the biggest names in the business.

La Femme is recognized by filmmakers and industry leaders as unique event that delivers unprecedented panels with experts in all avenues of the entertainment fields in getting films made, sold, and distributed. The festival uses a select handful of entertainment experts that actually inspire while giving filmmakers the reality of today's entrainment pitfalls. This is where the female indie filmmaker scene shines and is the only festival of its kind in spirit, content, and distribution opportunities for the woman filmmaker and where their work can be enjoyed by everyone.
