Brit Week

NewFilmmakers Los Angeles (NFMLA) once again presents a slate of films from the United Kingdom with InFocus: UK Cinema, along with a mixture of local, domestic and international stories and a debut feature film.

The celebration kicks off with a shorts program for InFocus: UK Cinema, offering a mixture of genres from across the UK, including animation, comedy, horror, drama and Sundance selected short documentary Life in Miniature.

The evening continues with Desert Shores, the feature film debut of Michael Stevantoni, which offers a contemplative exploration of marriage and masculinity through the lens of one man’s decision surrounding a promotion that would require his family to move, based on George McCormick’s short story collection Salton Sea.

The final shorts program of the night, Place We Find Ourselves puts a lens on stories of places and becoming absorbed in them, both tangible and intangible, evocatively familiar and entirely new.
