Filmmakers Board

The Filmmakers Board is comprised of twelve filmmakers whose work has screened at either Film Invasion Los Angeles or the Sherman Oaks Film Festival.   This board serves as the jury for our Filmmakers Awards; awards where filmmakers are given an award by their peers, not a panel of crusty old men who run a film festival.
