Intending to overthrow, destroy, or undermine an established or existing system

The SUBVERSIVE CINEMA SOCIETY seeks to honor and recognize boldly orginal films that not only live outside of the mainstream, but relish in ignoring and rebelling against the norms of the film community establishments. We are looking for films that defy genre and categorization, break down borders, push evnelopes, challenge pre-conceptions, and experiment with the artform of narrative film altogether.  


At SCS, we understand what it means to be a truly "Independent" filmmaker. We are on a mission to bring these wholly original films out of the dark and share them with the world through our special event screenings, awards, and social media network.


While born out of the Los Angeles basin, SCS hosts screenings at some of the most unusual spaces imaginable, all over the country. Award winners in all categories are eligible to have their films shown at these events.

Each year, the SUBVERSIVE FILM AWARDS take place, and the best of that year's submitted films will be announced. The winners in each category will be presented with a coveted SUBVERSIVE FILM AWARD.


Don't be afraid. Be bold. Be orginal. Be Subversive.
