The 2023 Southern California International Film Festival Award Results

(Updated 6/26/23)

Shine your talents in sunny SoCAL! The Southern California International Film Festival is a part of the GO Independent series of film festivals in the FAME family. Our goal is to give more opportunities for independent filmmakers and screenwriters to showcase and promote their art.


We are producing a full on, live film festival in Southern California. HOWEVER, we are susceptible to country, state and local laws, which enforce specific, gathering guidelines. To that end, circumstances beyond our control include venue policy and protocol, and insurance limitations.

The SoCAL Fest is both virtual and live. We hold screenings, an Awards Ceremony, and after parties.

For the year 2024 and for the foreseeable future, we will be producing a live event. Please understand, before submitting, that with little to no notification, we may have to change presentation formats, venues, and/or dates in adherence to any local or national policies.
