I’d like to welcome you to the Burbank International Film Festival now celebrating our twelfth year in the Media Capital of the World. 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 new award categories including Faith-Based, Diversity, Social Awareness, Los Angeles County Student Filmmakers, President’s Innovation Award and New Media, (webisodes & internet production). Please check out the complete list of special red carpet events, receptions and this years screening schedule and please re-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.
