Due to the recent pandemic, we have had to take into consideration what accommodations we would have to make this year in light of the pandemic.
Our competition is based upon the release and we've decided to move forward!
That said, when the winners are chosen, the Release will move forward. Whatever guidelines are in place regarding social distancing will have to be followed at that time.
The winning filmmakers will play a part in our decision on whether to move forward with the current guidelines, or to hold off their releases until restrictions ease up a bit. All systems are go! We look forward to seeing your work!
MISSION & OBJECTIVE
The Los Angeles Theatrical Release Competition & Awards mission is to celebrate independent filmmakers with an eye on having a Los Angeles Theatrical Release in a paid movie theater. Filmmakers will also have the opportunity to be awarded across all categories. Most great filmmakers think their films should get a theatrical release, but it's too expensive - until now.
For films entering also in sub-categories, the final decision will be made by professionals in that field.
Best Picture (any genre), Best Short (Overall) and Best Movie Trailer (any genre) will be given a 7-day theatrical release in a motion picture theater in Los Angeles County.
