The American Independent Film Festival celebrates the work of indie filmmakers. It is a unique platform for new talent and a tour-de-force of low-budget creativity and innovation. The Festival attracts an amazing array of filmmakers from across the world and offers film industry professionals in LA an extraordinary chance to glimpse the future of cinema.

The American Independent Film Festival runs at the same time, and just around the corner from, the American Film Market in Los Angeles. This makes AIFF the perfect place to get your film seen by the people who make things happen in the film industry.

AIFF focuses on the work of new filmmakers and films presenting new approaches and innovative solutions to working with limited budgets.

In 2012 we’ll show dozens of low-budget features and shorts films in our top-of-the-line screening venue in Los Angeles (Laemmle Music Hall). Giving a place for new talent to shine is central to the AIFF mission, and our selection reflects a broad survey of the latest in indie film trends.
