The Las Vegas Film Festival is a celebration of cultural discovery, community, and the art of visual storytelling. Our goal is to offer a creative outlet for independent storytellers and connect them with industry professionals within Las Vegas, NV, the entertainment capital of the world.


Hosted in Downtown Las Vegas' revitalized East Fremont District, the Las Vegas Film Festival’s 9th Year takes place from June 7-12, 2016. Each year, LVFF showcases films ranging from acclaimed directors, actors, and writers as well as first-time filmmakers. LVFF's Official selections include a unique collection of features, shorts, documentaries, music video and experimental films. This is a momentous occasion for our city as we connect with filmmakers and immerse them in the Las Vegas storytelling community. The six-day festival includes an array of social engagements in the fresh Downtown Las Vegas venues. The daily filmmakers parties and mixes offer an opportunity to connect with independent, local and professional filmmakers.
