2017 Imperial Valley Film Festival & Artist Showcase

The Imperial Valley Film Festival & Artist Showcase is a juried exhibition of independent filmmakers' and artists' work. This year's festival will include a screening of films, industry panels, Q&As with working professionals, and an Artist Gallery. The Festival will showcase a wide range of film projects, including shorts, features, music videos, and documentaries created by students and independent filmmakers from throughout the world, with special emphasis given to those who live/lived, attend school, have local ties to, or work in Imperial County, Yuma and Mexicali.

See the North County Coalition for the Arts website for additional details!


Imperial County is not only home to the largest sand dune system in North America, but also boasts year-round agriculture, beautiful seascapes, unique cities and towns, breathtaking mountains, arid desert vistas and plains and of course, some of the longest sun filled days anywhere. Add to that a streamlined permitting process and the fact that we are just 3 1/2 hours from Los Angeles and you have the setting for a successful project.
