NewFilmmakers Los Angeles (NFMLA) presents three programs of Canadian short films, co-hosted by the Consulate General of Canada in Los Angeles and Telefilm Canada and sponsored by Seneca College.

The films represent a mix of drama, comedy, thriller, horror, new media and documentary, and include alumni from TIFF 2017, award winners from top-tier festivals, and first time filmmakers alike.

The first program of the evening presents a mix of existentialism and comedy, with stories that explore the self and our connection with others (or lack thereof).

The next program prominently features family relationships and looking at the world through new eyes, either through those of a child or through those of someone whose life has been indelibly changed.

The final program of the night gets our adrenaline up, with action, laughter and music, while also challenging us to tackle difficult issues.
