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.
