Los Angeles Show Biz Shriners Film Festival is run by the Al Malaikah Show Business Shrine Club, proudly showcasing inspiring films of all genres, short comedy films, silent films, student films and other family-friendly content and will be held virtually in October, 2021. And the best part, you don’t need to be a Shriner to enter and take part in our festival. So spread the word.
As history serves, six decades ago, in 1958, Al Malaikah Shriners of Los Angeles who were in the Show Business industry formed the "Show Business Shrine Club of Hollywood." The Club members at that time were "active as a professional, in any phase, in the world of entertainment" and was based in the world-famous Shrine Temple and Auditorium, former venue for the Academy Awards. The "Show Business Shrine Club of Hollywood" included as members motion picture director Mervyn LeRoy (first President of the Club), Mel Blanc (voice of "Bugs Bunny"), western stars Roy Rogers and Gene Autry, actors Ernest Borgnine, Don DeFore, and Glen Ford, and many more. This rich tradition continues with Los Angeles Show Biz Shriners Film Festival, following the vision of its founders. Our work benefits Shriners Hospital for Children around the world.
Los Angeles Show Biz Shriners Film Festival is authorized by Harold Lloyd Entertainment Inc. and the Estate of Harold Lloyd, and brought to you by Al Mailakah Shriners and the Show Business Shrine Club.
