MLFF is a five-day festival that screens independent features and shorts in the spectacular setting of Mammoth Lakes—California’s premier mountain resort, high in the Eastern Sierras from May 23 – 27, 2018, Memorial Day weekend.


Named as one of the Top 50 Festivals Worth The Entry Fee by Movie Maker Magazine in 2016 & 2017, MLFF showcases the work of emerging, innovative filmmakers against the backdrop of California's ruggedly beautiful Eastern Sierra. Industry professionals provide mentoring and support, relationships and collaborations are actively promoted and nurtured.


We take chances on talented but little-known artists and are committed to discovering new voices that will shape the future of film. Numerous films from our festival have gone on to great success, including Academy Awards nominations, and have premiered at many other festivals.
