THE TOPANGA FILM FESTIVAL - "ONE OF THE 25 COOLEST FILM FESTIVALS IN THE WORLD"
 - Film Maker Magazine

The Topanga Film Institute arranges the annual Topanga Film Festival, which includes screenings, workshops, panels, mixers, and other events to present work that is courageous, innovative, and that inspires action. We endeavor to bridge cultures, and provide networking opportunities to our local and extended community.

Nominated as "one of the 25 coolest film festivals in the world" by Filmmaker Magazine, the acclaimed Topanga Film Festival is now in its 11th year, and programs short and feature films that challenge convention and tell stories that inspire new and original ways of seeing and understanding the world.

The unique open air film festival takes place in Topanga Canyon in the Santa Monica Mountains overlooking Los Angeles, and is frequented by the California film and music industry, artists, environmentalists, technologists, activists, foodies, and the eccentric Topangan community, providing a unique opportunity to enjoy a wealth of international and local content that ranges from creative to educationally empowering.
