SUBMISSIONS OPEN YEAR-ROUND
Rules and Terms
Are you an independent filmmaker ready and willing to invest in your own career? Do you want to showcase and/or test your content in front of a live audience? Looking to network and meet more filmmakers? Then you have found the right family!
The Independent Cinema Showcase (ICS) has made it possible for a community of filmmakers to share their visions at the Regal Cinema Theatres at the L.A. LIVE Convention Center in Downtown Los Angeles. Each filmmaker pays for their “screening/air time”, ranging from $35 to $85 depending on the length of the film, in order to fairly split the venue expense.
The ICS family provides an open mezzanine area where filmmakers can display and promote their marketing materials as well network with other independent artists. There will be a photographer and videographer capturing the event.
Please plan to provide the following:
1) Signed Agreement
2) DCP file with our sponsor Simple DCP
3) Film information and promotional materials (a downloadable link to your film – under 2GB – movie stills, behind the scenes photos and film details)
4) Payment for “screening/air time”
Awards & Prizes
Each filmmaker will receive a distribution opportunity with an award-winning online streaming platform called OPPRIME.tv, where the filmmakers can host and monetize their content. There will be three winners at each showcase with an "Honorable Mention" that includes a personalized trophy.
The showcase also includes special raffle prizes for all guests who attend and make a donation/contribution to ICS at the door. Previous prizes have included signed movie posters, comedy show tickets, coffee gift cards, sweet treats and discount packages (LiteGear, Quixote Studios, InkTip & Peet's Coffee).
