NewFilmmakers Los Angeles (NFMLA) is proud to present another month of incredible independent film talent. Join us on Saturday, June 24th, as we spotlight LGBT Cinema. Our 1st of 2 InFocus: LGBTQ Cinema Film Programs focuses on stories of love, connection and reconciliation by both local filmmakers and international talents from China and Brazil.

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 night, you will have the opportunity to mingle with the filmmakers, industry supporters and film lovers with open bar and beats at the filmmakers’ lounge adjacent to the private entry of the South Park Center’s 500 seat theater in Downtown Los Angeles.

Tickets are $5 advanced purchase / $7 at the door for single film programs and $15 for All-Access passes which includes all films with open bar.
