The inaugural Silicon Beach Film Festival, in conjunction with the Playa Vista Film Festival, opens on October 22nd, taking place just one week prior from the 47th anniversary of the birth of the internet at UCLA.  In this marathon festival, films will be shown back to back over 12 hours.  Opening at 11am with a ribbon cutting for Beach Dancer Films with The Venice Chamber of Commerce & The Venice Media District.

The Silicon Beach Film Festival & Playa Vista Film Festival both serve as a gathering place for filmmakers, artists, innovators, and the global creative community. Additionally, they provide a venue for independent films to gain exposure through the technology of apps which we are partnering with such as Board Walk App, Mo Pho (news syndication for your photos) & the Geo Filter for Snap Chat and accentuated by our Film Festivals on the westside of Los Angeles.
