Autumn Leaves


"You have GOT to see this film..."

The Oaks Film Festival is the location for films and scripts who seek an audience. We are a west coast based festival with judges whose interests range from documentaries to dramas, comedy to kitsch, shorts to the horrific but are all involved in films. Living near Los Angeles you cannot help but be somehow drawn to the industry, pulled in even on the fringes. It doesn't take long before you find yourself at indie film showings and wandering streets in search of that next gem. The next one that makes you exclaim to complete strangers “I have to tell you about this film...”


That is the magical moment. We'd like to help you get there.
