We're the kids who clicked around on YouTube back in 2009 and realized something really special was happening -
Music Videos were back.
Television forgot about them. Labels stopped bankrolling them. But for some crazy reason, people kept making them and watching them and loving the sh*t out of them. When no one was talking about them, we kicked off a conversation.
As a (proudly) grassroots festival, we've grown each year by word of mouth and a dedicated fan community. We attract submissions from 37 countries, host events with universities and partner festivals all over the world, and offer a unique platform to surface new talent and celebrate the established pros, because everyone deserves a little love.
LAMVF offers an alternative to the standard music video experience of sitting alone in your room, watching videos on your tiny laptop with your crappy speakers. We put videos on a big screen in a state-of-the-art movie theater with perfect sound and an audience of living, breathing people.
And you're invited.
