Launch of Creative Community
The LA Shorts Fest is now entering its 12th year as an Academy accredited Festival. We have a proud history, 30 of our festival shorts have received Oscar nominations, including 9 winners. Because the Festival attracts the best up-and-coming young directors and writers, we have embarked on an ambitious program of talent discovery development.
The Festival will feature a select few directors/writers from the creative community whom we feel show promise in the entertainment industry, based on their films and projects (scripts, treatments, story ideas etc.) in development. The Festival will then invite industry professionals to meet these fortunate directors/writers, who will have a rare opportunity to introduce themselves and their projects to you and your company.
We are currently creating a network of industry professionals consisting of agents, managers, producers, financiers, and distributors that we would like to participate in this talent discovery project.
If you currently have a profile active you will need to login and go to MyAccount to update your information and projects.
Keep in mind that the creative community is in the beta stage, so if you experience any problems or have any questions please email us.
