International Film Festival of Cinematic Arts (IFFCA) - Los Angeles

The Film Festival of Cinematic Arts (IFFCA) is started by passionate cinema enthusiasts who would like to contribute to the film  community and recognize the excellence and hard work which goes in making of a film. The festival has a goal of fostering a meaningful global conversation between cultures and countries through Cinema.

The festival is a joyous celebration of the art and craft of cinematic storytelling. We celebrate and recognize not only the directors, actors, but also present jury awards to screenwriters, editors, and composers. At the Cinematic Arts film festival, we celebrate all artists responsible for creating cinema.

Finally, it is indeed possible to tell evocative, visceral, meaningful, and moving films without spending millions of dollars. The Cinematic Arts film festival will inspire filmmakers around the world by premiering examples of films made on micro budgets. We have also included a new category just for music videos to appreciate the creativity and talent it takes to make these short forms of film making.

Be a part of this global cinematic experience.
