The Los Angeles Live Score Film Festival features short films with original scores performed live-to-picture. The 2019 festival is on Saturday, July 20th at the Barnsdall Gallery Theatre and is presented by Helix Collective in collaboration with the Academy of Scoring Arts. Films for the 2019 festival will be curated by the faculty at the New York Film Academy – Los Angeles, the Los Angeles Film School and Columbia College, Hollywood. The 2019 festival signature sponsors are Orange Tree Samples, The Los Angeles Film School, and Sonic Fuel Studios.
Selected film composers are paired with a winning filmmaker to create an original score for the festival. The film is screened with the score performed live by the renowned performance and recording ensemble, Helix Collective. The screening includes an interview with the filmmakers and composers. Awards for Best Picture and Best Musical Score are presented at the close of the festival.
Los Angeles Live Score Film Festival films have garnered Best Score wins at the L.A. Cinefest, IMDB Independent Short Awards, the Under 5 Minute Film Festival in Toronto, and screened at several additional festivals including the Los Angeles Outfest.
Now in it’s seventh season, LALSFF’s goal is to highlight the role of collaboration between composers and filmmakers. Acting like a talent agent, the festival brings experts in the two disciplines together. At the screenings, filmmakers and composers hear and see the work of new colleagues, meet new collaborators, and establish working relationships with each other. Additionally, Helix Collective proves that it is possible to get talented, experienced film musicians to play and record for independent films!
There may be an additional screening at 3pm.
