The 2020 edition of LA Shorts International Film Festival was scheduled to start on 15th July and to end on 23th July. These dates are still on FilmFreeway, however it seems it could be postponed.

A message appears on the festival’s website:

We wish to reassure filmmakers that we fully intend for LA Shorts International Film Festival to happen in 2020.

LA Shorts is still working towards delivering the festival in 2020 while adhering to the guidelines put forward by our federal and state governments, to ensure the measures we take will help protect our audience and filmmakers.

We are determined to overcome fear and anxiety by marching forward in an effort to heal.

Be brave, healthy, and responsible.
