Los Angeles has long been the entertainment capital of the world, and now Silicon Valley and Silicon Beach have become critical forces in this ecosystem. Yet, there has been no film festival to address all of these converging industries...until now. We are excited about the future creators participating in this ecosystem and look forward to seeing and experiencing their submissions!
