The  Los Angeles Movie Awards mission is to celebrate Independent Motion Picture and Literary Arts by providing a platform for filmmakers and writers to have an opportunity to be awarded for their work. 

Welcome to the 2024 Los Angeles Movie Awards. The LAMA offers more than just a handful of award possibilities.  We pride ourselves in providing a wide variety of  award opportunities between our 10 categories.   Not only will filmmakers have a higher chance of landing an award,  they also will not be at risk of jeopardizing their world premiere status with other festivals.  Films that are selected to screen with us will have the opportunity to opt out of their screening while still maintaining their award/s if there is a conflict with another festival or event.  At that point, the next runner up will move in to the screening spot. “Best” films of each category will be guaranteed a screening spot and will have the opportunity to win our Audience Choice Award. Official selections and honorable mentions will also have the opportunity to win the Audience Choice Award.  All winners will receive award certificates. Films submitted through withoutabox.com will receive a stress free IMDB tittle page for their projects.
