"Channeling the early work of Martin Scorsese, it's this introspection-the pit between crime and morality-that makes BOOSTER so pertinent."
Joe Levdon / Variety

The LA INDIE Film Festival is the partner festival to the well established LA COMEDY Festival, www.LAComedyFest.com. Over the years we have had the privilege to work with hundreds of filmmakers who have told wonderfully funny stories. Many have gone on to make great films in other genres.
This made us think how wonderful it would be to showcase all the terrific stories that are being told in film, in all the different, creative ways in which they are being told.
We are very excited to present the 5th LA INDIE Film Festival.
