We invite and encourage all LDS and local filmmakers to participate in the 14th LDS Film Festival 2015 and submit their work to the festival. The success of the LDS Film Festival is a direct result of the quality and diversity of the work submitted.

The motto of the festival is: "The glory of God is intelligence, or, in other words, light and truth." (D&C 93:36). The festival is looking for intelligent stories and films that deal with spirituality in a universal way. The films may deal with Gospel issues, however, this is not a requirement. Light and truth can be found in every aspect of life.

The LDS Film Festival has grown tremendously over the last years. What began as a short film festival, is now a major event that showcases an impressive array of feature films, special screenings and short films. Over the last ten years, attendance has been constantly increasing, now averaging 5000-7000 visitors each year.


The LDS Film Festival offers multiple sponsorship opportunities that allow you to have a presence at the festival and reach filmmakers and audiences alike.

Over the last five years, attendance has been constantly increasing, now averaging several thousand visitors each year.
