With an online community of over 150,000 filmmakers and film lovers, the 1st annual AudFest brings together our community face to face. All Audience Awards winning films will screen at the NoHo El Portal Theatre, along with an exciting festival premiere - Audience Awards Women’s Film Challenge.

A company started by filmmakers for filmmakers, Audience Awards is bent on providing opportunity and exposure for our amazing artists. Your days at AudFest will be filled with invaluable industry panels and workshops, your nights filled with screenings, networking parties and awards ceremonies.
