I’d like to welcome you to the Burbank International Film Festival now in our eighth year. As an award-winning filmmaker, I understand the hard work and commitment it takes to produce an independent film. We celebrate you, and want to help your film get the industry attention it deserves. We are also excited to include the addition of several awards categories including Faith-based films, Diversity, Los Angeles County Student Filmmakers, President’s Innovation Award as well as New Media (webisodes & internet). Please check out the list of special events, and Festival Screening Schedule and please visit the website for continued updates and announcements. We thank you for your support and look forward to seeing you at this year’s Festival.
