The Micheaux Film Festival is a multicultural film festival that showcases and celebrates diverse representation in the entertainment landscape while cultivating a community that gives artists an opportunity to tell their unique stories. With a cutting-edge and fresh take on the festival experience, we bring independent creatives together and curate an environment for artists to build relationships with future collaborators in the television, film, and digital space.

The festival is aptly named after Oscar Micheaux, a pioneer filmmaker described as the most successful African-American filmmaker of the first half of the 20th century.

We invite all aspects of individualism and uniqueness including race, color, religion, sex, national origin, political affiliation, sexual orientation, marital status, disability, military service, or other non-merit factors.

In our 2020 season, we received over 120 submissions and showcased over 60 projects of diverse up-and-coming and award-winning directors, writers, producers, and actors. The festival brought out more than 700 guests throughout the event weekend to the world-renowned Regal Cinemas LA Live: A Barco Innovation Center, one of the most technologically advanced theaters in the nation.

Going into our third year, we are excited to continue growing and expanding, accepting feature-length films and documentaries, as well as shorts of all genres.
