James Pratt who is up for best actor for his performance in the feature film Malibu Crush is one of several finalists whose film is also debuting at the festival, giving audiences a first look before release.

Malibu Crush was shot between Bondi Beach in Sydney Australia and Los Angeles in 2021 and tells the story of two best friends from Pasadena who pretend to be film directors in Australia to impress an ex-girlfriend. Its worldwide release is in July and will be distributed through Cardinal XD Media and Bounty Films.

BHIFF is comprised of a team of filmmakers and content creators who have had the opportunity to positively impact the world of film by partnering with some of the heavy hitters in this industry. We know what it’s like to put your heart and soul into your art only to have it passed on because you are not one of the “lucky ones”. We started Beyond Hollywood because we know that a shift is happening in the industry. You no longer need million dollar budgets to start a production, but you do need eyes to see your finished product. Every year, hundreds of incredible films fall to the wayside simply because there just isn’t an audience that knows about it. We want to help change that.

The way we have designed BHIFF is unlike any other film festival you’ve applied to. If you are chosen as a finalist for one of our categories, our team works vigorously to accomplish two things:

  1. Use the relationships we’ve built over the past 10 years to put your work in front of the people that can help take your project to the next level (Producers, Executives, Agents, etc.)
  2. Use our marketing expertise to build momentum around you and your project by putting more eyes in front of it

As an organization, we exist to empower the new generation of thought leaders, developers, creators, digital marketers and entrepreneurs, to learn new skills, grow their careers, chase their passions and create financial freedom for themselves, their families, and their lives, all while living out their true purpose. Our global campuses and pop-up workshops will help to eradicate poverty. We are part of a global movement to increase diversity in tech and grow new economies in underserved communities around the world. We enable millennials to become what they want to become in life by learning new skills and leveraging the power of the digital economy. We are living proof that all you need to succeed in this new economy is WiFi and a dream.
