All Sports Los Angeles Film Festival

Whether it is a dramatic or comedic piece, we want screenwriters and filmmakers to share their great stories in regards to the world of sports. We felt that creating this festival would give the many sports fanatics out there an outlet for their love of competition. We ask you, the filmmaker, to only submit films that the plot centers around the competition or competitor. We will respectfully decline films that just have a competition scene in them that isn't pivotal to the story or character.

Some people have asked us to define "sports." Well, we want to include any subject matter that deals with mental and physical competition for the sake of winning a prize (and not killing anyone along the way to do it). So we're ready to watch and read any stories from auto racing to badminton and spelling bees to chess.

The festival this year will be held at the El Portal Theater in North Hollywood, California on November 9-11, 2012. We plan to have a reception on either Friday or the Thursday prior to the festival's opening.

Our jury and judges are well respected people in the film and sporting industry.  Having your film or screenplay in the festival may open doors that may not be available to you.  We can't promise sudden fame and fortune but we'll do our best to get you noticed.

This is the 4th year of the festival.
