NewFilmmakers Los Angeles is proud to present another month of incredible independent film talent. Join us on Saturday, June 24th, as we start the night with an eccentric film program. We are screening five short films that cover a wide range of narratives from a lonely girl trying to find her voice in the world to a 100-year-old woman rebelling against her aging daughter’s demands.

Our next program of the night presents the 1st of 2 InFocus: LGBTQ Cinema Film Programs. This shorts program focuses on stories of love, connection and reconciliation by both local filmmakers and international talents from China and Brazil.

Closing the evening is the second LGBTQ shorts program that revolves around conflicts of identity, community and family. This program’s stories include a serial killer on the hunt for love, millennials who decide to get their lives together after one last night of debauchery and four misfits who make the world their stage.

These 2 shorts programs illuminate a wide range of the LGBTQ experience, contrasting with the common one-dimensional portrayals of LGBTQ characters. These emerging directors give more representation to the LGBTQ community by humanizing their characters and relating them to their audiences.

Throughout the event, attendees will have opportunities to mingle with the filmmakers, industry supporters and film lovers with an open bar at the filmmakers’ lounge adjacent to the private entry of the South Park Center’s 500 seat theater in Downtown Los Angeles.
