This diverse festival screens Films, Documentaries, Commercials, Shorts, Music Videos and Screenplays that are created “by women for everyone” as entertainment. This festival is not a conglomerate or big business venture but one woman’s vision to make a difference and increase the ability for women creating entertainment to get a head and be seen.

What sets this festival apart are its amazing sprite with unprecedented panels with experts in all avenues of the entertainment fields in getting films made, sold, and distributed. LA Femme uses a select handful of entertainment experts that actually inspire while giving filmmakers the reality of today’s entertainment pitfalls. This is where the female indie filmmaker scene shines and is the only festival of its kind in sprite, content, and distribution opportunities for the woman filmmaker.

The festival has networking parties every night with a gala closing night ceremony for the attendees, honorees and winners where filmmakers, entertainment professionals, distribution executives and celebrities mix and mingle all festival long.

Our winners and selected films have secured agents, managers and worldwide distribution. Some of our honorees have been: Rosanna Arquette, Susan Seidelman, Penelope Spheeris, Lea Thompson, Jacqueline Bisset and Martha Coolidge, Vivica Fox, Lorraine Toussaint and Tippi Hedren.

This is your chance to become a supportive and creative LA Femme Alumni and join the forces of the women making a difference in entertainment.
