Monthly Film Festival – June 23rd, 2018

NewFilmmakers Los Angeles (NFMLA) spotlights LGBTQ+ cinema and also highlights post production in partnership with the Los Angeles Post Production Group.

The night begins with the InFocus: LGBTQ+ shorts program, which features both narrative and nonfiction stories of struggle, triumph and personal relationships.

Next up is a shorts program of films that each exemplify strong elements of post production, in celebration of the Los Angeles Post Production Group’s tenth anniversary. From sound and music to editing, VFX and stop-motion animation post-production, the program represents a wide range of skills that make films come alive once shooting wraps.

Concluding the night is the feature film Alaska’s A Drag, the story of a drag performer in small-town Alaska who must survive his surroundings and find a way to follow his dreams, created from a short film made in AFI’s Directing Workshop for Women.

Tickets are only $5 for Single Film Programs and $15 for all films with open bar!
