The Los angeles International Underground Film Festival celebrates the efforts and accomplishments of true underground artists from around the world. Filmmakers, writers, etc... who capitalize on their creative intuition to create memorable and inspiring pieces of work when major budgets do not exist.

The LAIUFF is a true independent festival in every sense. Aiming to inspire, motivate and award the true innovative and artistic geniuses of our time. Every independent artist hopes to one day emerge from the underground scene and share their talents with the masses. Hopefully the showcase platform we provide will help facilitate that dream. We’re excited to display a wide range of works from all genres that will have industry pros, filmmakers and filmgoers buzzing. Over 15 awards will be granted this season within our 10 exciting categories of competition. We look forward to seeing you at the 2015 Summer Los Angeles International Underground Film Festival.
