About Long Beach Indie

Unlike any other event in the world, the five-day Long Beach Indie International Film, Media, and Music Festival (August 30-September 3, 2017) is a global entertainment experience that includes the LBI International Film Festival, LBI Film, Media, and Music Conference, and LBI College and Career Fair exposing urban youth to careers in arts, entertainment, and digital media.

 

Since 2014 the event has attracted more than 8000 attendees, screened over 500 films, and drawn Oscar, Emmy, Grammy, Golden Globe, Directors Guild of America, ALMA and NAACP Image Award winners and nominees, as well as top global scholars, as presenters. The majority of feature films screened have gone on to gain international distribution and the 2014 winner for Best Animated Short (The Dam Keeper) was nominated for an Academy Award.
