Promoting the best in cinema in the heart of Orange County!

Ideas come to life at our festival. Bring yours, and find your audience!


Inportant Announcement

We have an important announcement! After much deliberation, we have decided to name our award the HATTIE award, after the great actress HATTIE MCDANIEL.  Ms. McDaniel won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Gone With the Wind In 1939.  She was the first African American to win an Oscar.  We hope to honor her memory with our awards and encourage other filmmakers, actors and crew to strive to break barriers in cinema.  Here’s to Hattie!

About Us


Our Mission

We are an inclusive film festival, actively seeking submissions from underrepresented filmmakers.  Our goal is to promote the work of deserving filmmakers and be an important step on their career path.


Our Festival

We have bi-monthly screenings of a selection of the winning films where the filmmakers can mingle and make important connections with like-minded creative people.



In addition to live screenings, we will publish interviews with the winners.  Check back here for forthcoming interviews!
