GlennFest 2016 is here!

GlennFest Film Festival 2016 is held this year from September 24 to October 9th, in Downey, California. Screenings are held at various locations, including the Downey Krikorian Theaters at 8200 Third Street in Downey, The Epic Lounge at 8239 2nd Street in Downey, and Downey Civic Theatre at 8435 Firestone Blvd in Downey.

Tickets for all screenings are FREE.  How is this possible?  Our Founder and Executive Director, Glenn Stephens, loves movies and especially loves sharing movies that most people haven’t seen.

It wouldn’t be possible without our wonderful sponsors, however, and we need your help to sponsor the festival as well!  Email us at the contact page, and we’ll show you how to connect with a diverse audience of film lovers in Southeast Los Angeles County.

Stay tuned here for the full announcement of all the films playing at this year’s festival.


Call to Sponsors!

Each and every year, GlennFest Film Festival is made possible by our generous sponsors. In order for us to continue providing films to the Downey community at no cost, we need to meet our yearly goal in sponsorship. In previous years, we have been aided by the following organizations:

  • Downey Arts Coalition
  • SEIU Local 721 American’s with Disabilities Caucus
  • SEIU Lavender Caucus
  • Running Bear Media

Now it’s your time to shine! Every donation brings us a step closer to our goal. Help us continue to provide free films to communities, and we’ll help you by publicizing your name, product, or business at our festival. Our festival is attended by hundreds of people each year–that’s hundreds of new patrons who will learn about your service.

If you’re interested in sponsoring, please contact the festival director, Glenn Stephens, via email.
