About Us

IMDb qualifier Indie Short Fest (ISF-LA) is an LA-based international film competition with bimonthly live screenings in Burbank, California.

ISA-LA is looking for independent projects from all genres, particularly low or no-budget ones, as well as from all countries, especially from those traditionally underrepresented in the global film industry.

Each round, all submitted projects are featured in ISF-LA site and social media (with the publication of synopsis, stills and a trailer/teaser) as part of a general promotional action of indie production. Submitter has the option of decline any public highlight, as long as notified ISF-LA, keeping however his project(s) under consideration. These projects are judged by a random team of invited experts from academia and film industry from Los Angeles area, against a high standard of merit. From the pool of official selection, which has a very competitive acceptance rate, ISF-LA chose the nominees and award winners of the season. All of them can add their projects to IMDb. Some of the award-winning projects, selected by the programmers of ISF-LA, are publicly screened in Los Angeles at the end of each round.

Also, some of the award winners can be invited for an interview or to provide the festival with a BTS or award acceptance video statement to be published in ISF-LA website.

Thanks to Indie Short Fest for nominating me as a semi-finalist for my short film The Birthday Card!

Thanks to an amazing team in front of and behind the camera: Joshua Lang, Mechanical Dragons, George Cantero, Tony Nevada, BJ Lange. With Love, Mia Rivera :)
We're grateful to have won in 5 categories at Indie Short Fest! fugitivezero.com/press
"Parched" has been nominated for Best Horror Short at the Indie Short Fest. Thank you for your consideration, but more importantly, thank you for watching my film. Knowing that someone out there has taken the time to see "Parched," means that, I was seen. That's something worth telling stories for: connection, finding your voice, finding a community that understands you. Perhaps that all starts here, with "Parched" and Indie Short Fest.
ALTERED has had its first run at the Los Angeles International Short Film Festival sponsored by Indie Short Fest & won an Honorable Mention Award for Sound Design and a Nomination for Best Microfilm!!! Thank you Indie Short Fest! Our little ALTERED team is honored to be among such an amazing company of independent filmmakers. We do what we can with what we have where we are.
