NewFilmmakers Los Angeles (NFMLA) hosts its annual InFocus: Dutch Cinema program with presenting partner Dutch Culture USA (Consulate General of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in New York).
This October weekend’s film program begins on Friday night with a limited-seating screening of InFocus: Dutch Cinema, a collection of new work from Dutch short film directors curated in partnership with SEE NL. The program is representative of new voices, genres and themes in filmmaking coming out of the Netherlands. It includes stories of fighting for autonomy, confronting loss, finding strength and comfort, fighting darkness, choosing our own path, and healing trauma.
NFMLA showcases films by filmmakers of all backgrounds throughout the year, across both our general and InFocus programming. All filmmakers are welcome and encouraged to submit their projects for consideration for upcoming NFMLA Festivals, regardless of the schedule for InFocus programming, which celebrates diversity, inclusion and region by spotlighting communities of filmmakers within our filmmaking community as part of our monthly program. This project is supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts and is made possible in part by a grant from the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs.
