The Tenth (10th) Annual LA Femme International Film Festival returns to the Regal Theaters at LA LIVE, October 16-19, 2014. LA Femme is a world renowned festival celebrating the accomplishments of woman in entertainment
“We are celebrating our tenth year and the amount of women filmmakers that have passed though our theatres is like a rolodex of the new Hollywood,” said Leslie LaPage, Founder. LA Femme currently offers reduced entry fees until May 16, 2014 to encourage a wide range of filmmaker submissions making it affordable for students and independent filmmakers to submit their projects. LA Femme screens a very diverse cross section of films from around the world.
A film at LA Femme does not have to be directed by a woman, but a requirement for submission is that the film involves a woman in a leadership role as the film’s writer, producer, or director.
LA Femme accepts and shows a diverse range of film submissions including features, documentaries, mid-length, vsmoy short films, screenplays, commercials, music videos, animation, games, webisodes, and mobisodes. “Our animation category is growing and we hope to launch some very exciting careers in the decade to come.” Said Ms. LaPage
