Prizes & Awards

This category is not a competition.

Women Filmmakers Award
This accolade is awarded to a female filmmaker who demonstrates excellent in her field. It may be awarded to a female director or producer.

Diversity in the Arts Award
Awarded to the filmmaker who reflects true, non-stereotyped diversity in short film. Films encapsulating the LGBT community, disability, race, and/or religion will be eligible.

Best Short Film
While impossible to judge subjective art, it is possible to recognize exceptional effort. This award will go to the Best Short Film of the festival, juried by industry professionals.

Audience Choice Award
The attending audience will vote for their favorite short film. Only one vote per person is permitted.

Category Rules

Any film under 18 minutes is considered a short film. All genres are welcome. We highly encourage films that depict diversity, or that are made by diverse peoples. The LADFF definition of "diversity" is one of a multicultural nature: It reflects our world realistically. This involves, but is not limited to, disability, race, LGBT, religion, and other social diversity.
Please refrain from submitting films that promote hate crimes, pornography, and cruelty to animals. These films will not be considered, and are the antithesis of our mission.
