LA Independent Women Film Awards seasonal winners

LA Independent Women Film Awards is a seasonal and annual festival with various competitions and screening programs devoted to the promotion, screening and distribution of films directed and produced by women. The festival also has a screenwriting contest and selects the best artists in acting, cinematography and editing for its seasonal IMDb verified competition which brings award winning female artists to vote for the best of each category.



It is the mission of the festival to support and discover female voices working in cinema in fiction, documentary, animation, experimental, comedy and all genres from all over the globe. The annual Women's Lens screening program of the festival takes place every year in January through various cinemas in LA and the LA Independent women film magazine.
