Our festival runs all day and contains a segment fo shorts that spotlight many up and coming genre-filmmakers.

This year, we will open our festival with a marathon of screenings at Art Theatre Long Beach. You can expect guest speakers with Q&A panels, a shorts segment, and a feature films segment. Each of these will have categories that spotlight animations, women, and BIPOC filmmakers.

We encourage filmmakers of all levels to submit to our festival, and we welcome as many submissions as you’d like. Please keep in mind, that if your film is selected, and it was submitted to different categories, it will only play in one.
