How Does It Work?

  • DIFF operates as a quarterly online film festival.  Winners of the Vitruvian Award for best quarterly FEATURE FILM, SHORT FILM, and SCREENWRITING categories, will go on to showcase at DIFF’s annual live red carpet event in Los Angeles, CA.
  • Eight (8) films will screen at the live event in front of friends, family, and industry professionals, for their shot at The Leo Award (Best of Fest).
  • Long and short formats will compete against each other for The Leo.
  • Each showcase (one (1) feature paired with one (1) short) will be followed by filmmaker Q&A.  There will be four (4) separate showings; eight films total.
  • After the final showcase, DIFF will host an After Party, where The Leo will be awarded to the “Best of Fest” film, and “Best Screenplay”.
