NewFilmmakers Los Angeles (NFMLA) spotlights LGBTQ+ stories, including the world premiere of director Andrew Guerrero’s first feature film, Come Into Your Own.

The night begins with shorts program “Make Your Own Magic,” a collection of stories about magic in various forms and creating ones’ own solutions through determination, from literal magic to healing from mental illness to trying to create a small piece of a long lost better world for a child.

The evening continues with feature film Come Into Your Own, a first feature by filmmaker Andrew Guerrero and a part of InFocus: LGBTQ+ Cinema, which tells a story of the complicated ways that sexual identity can shift and the meaning attached to those shifts.

The night concludes with shorts program InFocus: LGBTQ+ Cinema, which takes viewers through a range of queer experiences through metaphor, genre, comedy and unflinching drama. Included are stories of familial acceptance, transition and finding oneself.
