Join us for the first Daniel Koops Award for Outstanding Film Score, May 11 at the James Bridges Theater on the UCLA campus. The event will celebrate the art of film score composition, in memory of a young festival film score composer we lost in 2022.

Reserve free admission for this very special event here!

















The festival is fundraising to bring Marusya Shuvalova, a young Ukrainian filmmaker, and her family to the festival in Los Angeles in May to screen her two fantastic short documentary films about life as a child during wartime. Marusya will also make school appearances and have filmmaker learning experiences with industry professionals.

Please help us support this brave and talented young filmmaker!
