Are you ready?

The Laughlin International Film Festival (LIFF) creates an exciting, professional and prestigious event that operates as an annual platform for U.S. and International filmmakers to showcase their films, network with fellow filmmakers and enjoy the casinos and attractions of Laughlin, Nevada. Films are screened in state-of-the-art digital theaters in the heart of Laughlin over four days, in conjunction with social networking events, film workshops/panels, parties and our annual Saturday Night Awards Show. The LIFF Team is working with the local Laughlin Stadium 9 Cinemas, Laughlin Outlet Center and our Host casino the Tropicana Laughlin to bring you an exciting and unique event that you don't want to miss!

Laughlin, Nevada sits on the Colorado River across from Bullhead City, Arizona near the tri-state intersection of California, Arizona and Nevada. Laughlin is roughly 95 miles south of Las Vegas and and 290 miles from Los Angeles. The weather in Laughlin during October is ideal with views of scenic mountain ranges accompanied by a refreshing river walk between the resorts.

LIFF is a great destination for any Filmmaker looking to catch some great films, attend industry workshops, network with filmmakers from all over the world, while exploring the Colorado River and the Casinos of Laughlin. We encourage filmmakers to rally their cast & crews for a fun road trip to Laughlin and an exciting and affordable weekend.

We host an annual Filmmaker's Breakfast on Sunday with a Director/Producer Panel, raffle and complimentary mimosas!
