This project provides a great opportunity for talented film makers such as yourself to gain high-profile exposure and showcase your work to a vast new audience whilst raising awareness for coffee communities and Project Waterfall.


You are invited to produce and submit your coffee themed film for consideration as an individual or part of a team, and those films that are shortlisted will be shown in a “movie room” at The Los Angeles Coffee Festival taking place 9 - 11 November 2018.

All film makers inspired to submit their work are to consider the following guidelines in order for their work to be accepted and shown at The Los Angeles Coffee Festival:
  • All films must be inspired by the theme of coffee, coffee culture or Los Angeles 
  • All films must be 5 minutes or under
    • Any film submitted that is longer than this will only be judged on the first 
  • 5 minutes
  • All films submitted must be made by independent film makers. Student submissions are welcome

Any instances of company branding or specific references to companies seen in the film will not be accepted and will therefore not be shown at The Los Angeles Coffee Festival.

The Coffee Art Project: Los Angeles is a judged film competition with a maximum of 25 films shortlisted and shown at the festival.

You will receive advance notice if your submission has been successful and will be shown at the festival.

Once films are selected, a schedule will be drawn up with films shown on a loop throughout the duration of the festival. 

Submissions made as a part of The Coffee Art Project: Los Angeles will be shown alongside other informative films created by the sponsors of The Los Angeles Coffee Festival. These films will not be judged as a part of the competition.


All submissions will be judged by a select panel of industry representatives in advance of the festival. A prize of $1,500 will be awarded to the winning film maker!
