MISSION & OBJECTIVE
Now in its 7th year, TFF is dedicated to the exhibition of independent cinema that explores trans‐format content and inspires the imagination. The festival provides a unique opportunity to enjoy a wealth of international content that ranges from pure unbounded creativity to empowering and educational. The festival endeavors to bridge cultures, create and expand community, provide cultural exchange, and networking opportunities.
Nominated as "one of the 25 coolest film festivals in the world" by Filmmaker Magazine, the Topanga Film Festival accepts any genre of short film into competition that challenges conventions with an original voice and point of view. The open-air festival reflects the international and eclectic taste of its community. Known as "the smallest festival with the biggest prize" we award prizes valued in excess of $80,000.
The Topanga Film Festival is a project of the International Humanities Center, a 501[c]3 non‐profit organization.
