INDIEDANCE Film Festival is a Southern California based film festival that celebrates Independent Short and Feature films of all genres. INDIEDANCE Film Festival is for working Filmmakers, by working Filmmakers. INDEDANCE Film Festival is Relentlessly Independent. INDIEDANCE’s inaugural season drew an incredible mix of films representing all genres, featuring outstanding performances by notable talent including Morena Baccarin, Krista Allen, Bill Moseley, William Shatner, Ray Wise and Richard Riechle while at the same time drawing breakout performances by those who should now be on your radar including INDIEDANCE 2020 Best Actress Aine Ni Mhuiri. and INDIEDANCE 2020 Best Actor Sean Leon. Congratulations to all INDIEDANCE filmmakers for succeeding in sharing your visions during a very difficult year!

If we love your film, we will champion it! Networking contacts and future collaborators were also made by many in support of INDIEDANCE’s central mission of building a community of and for indie filmmakers. Head over to the INDIEDANCE Vimeo page to check out all Virtual Red Carpet interviews: As independent filmmakers ourselves we understand how much hard work and personal sacrifice has gone into the creation of your film and have therefore developed the following Filmmaker Bill of Rights to ensure that all film submissions are treated fairly and impartially. What makes INDIEDANCE Film Festival different? The INDIEDANCE Bill of Rights is our commitment to all submitting filmmakers: The INDIEDANCE Filmmaker Bill of Rights: I-Our programmers will view your entire film. We will ensure that our staffing levels are sufficient at all times so that all submitted films will be given fair consideration, all films submitted will be judged fairly and in their entirety. II-Your film will stand on its own merits as we do not collect personal information about the Filmmakers who have created it. If it’s a good film, it will be passed up for next level consideration. III-100% of our programmed films will come from open submissions. We will not pre-fill valuable slots by running after films that have played in previous festivals and who have opened to acclaim. We will find the next great Filmmakers through our submission process and don’t need to chase anyone down in hopes of elevating our festivals reputation-this will occur naturally through a thorough screening process and does not need to be augmented by recruiting what’s just played at film fest XYZ. IV-Our festival will not cave into sponsors who may attempt to strongly recommend one film over another as a winner of any of our categories. Your film will be judged on its merits and nothing else. V-Your film will not be made available online by our festival for any reason. No small print, no disclaimer-we just won’t do it. We will view your film via the FilmFreeway link and only request the download option if your film has been selected for our annual Live Screenings.
