Because all LJFFF Official Selection films are automatically considered for the International Fashion Film Awards™ we need a complete listing of the names of the creative people who worked on the film.

Physical storage devices will not be sent back.

If accepted, submission imagery, including film and clips, you agree will be available for use in the Festival’s promotional activities.

You agree that if your film is accepted it will be available for further distribution through our networks and events, unless by prior written arrangement.

Submissions will be considered for the La Jolla International Fashion Film Festival, (LJIFFF), and LJIFFF associated, supported, and/or branded film festivals and events around the world. Unless by prior written arrangement.

Films that have been released theatrically, broadcast on television, or screened at any number of film festivals within their country of origin are eligible for submission to the Festival and all Festival program categories. Films that have been released theatrically, broadcast on television, or screened at film festivals outside of their country of origin are not eligible for open submissions. This does not include “work-in-progress” screenings in which an incomplete version of the film was previously screened.

La Jolla is a celebration of films and their filmmakers, therefore we give priority to films with attending directors. Kindly let us know if you are planning on joining us.

The Process

  1. A film becomes an “Official Selection”.
  2. The film is Officially Nominated and becomes part of the Final Screening Program at LJFFF.
  3. The film is voted on by our international jury to win one or more of the coveted IFFA Awards.


Questions are welcome!
