About Us


IMDb qualifier IndieX Film Fest is an LA-based international short film festival with red carpet screenings and Q&A all year round and an annual awards event at Regal LA Live.

Among its previous winners, IndieX is proud to have Academy Award winners Barney Burman and Joel Harlow, Academy Award nominees Abigail Breslin, Bruce Davison, Janet McTeer, Keisha Castle-Hughes, and Paul Giamatti, Primetime Emmy winner Loretta Devine, and Primetime Emmy nominees Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick.

IndieX is looking for independent projects from all genres and all countries, especially from those traditionally underrepresented in the global film industry. With room for transgressive, eccentric or forbidden, to balance traditional narratives with high standard projects, linear or non linear, that simply “don’t fit”.

Each monthly round, all submitted projects are judged by a random team of invited experts from academia and film industry from Los Angeles area, against a high standard of merit.

From the pool of official selection, which has a very competitive acceptance rate, IndieX choses the nominees and award winners of the season. Some of the award-winning projects, selected by the programmers of IndieX, are publicly screened in Los Angeles in special Q&A sessions with cast and crews.

Annual Awards qualifying 
The nominees and award winners of each round qualify for the Annual Awards. For this event in Los Angeles, the judging team of IndieX chose around 75/85 films to nominate for the best of the year (from the pool of nominees and awards winners of 12 monthly rounds).

Annual Awards event 
Our annual stage, showcasing some of the best independent short films curated from around the world, provides a platform for emerging directors, writers, and actors from different countries, and attracts a diverse audience of film aficionados, passionate storytellers, and filmmaking executives of every stripe to downtown Los Angeles. Most of the films have their cast and crews at Regal LA Live.
