The LA INDIE Film Festival is the partner festival to the well established LA COMEDY Festival, www.LAComedyFest.com. Over the years they have had the privilege to work with hundreds of filmmakers who have told wonderfully funny stories. Many have gone on to make great films in other genres.
Every LA COMEDY Festival they receive hundreds of film submissions and have been struck by how many of those films they receive that don’t necessarily fit into the genre of comedy, but are nonetheless super films that deserve to be seen by an LA audience and Industry. This made them think how wonderful it would be to showcase all the terrific stories that are being told in film, in all the different, creative ways in which they are being told.
