NewFilmmakers Los Angeles opens the 2017 festival year with the InFocus diversity series. This event showcases a curated lineup of films submitted from the US and around the world. Six excellent stories around aging and the clear social distance in modern culture; a young nurse has empathy with her patient's desire to let go, a father-son and a mother-daughter each experience the ubiquitous generation gap, a widow hangs on to rituals to keep her husband close, and a young man saves his long lost mother in a compromising situation.
NFMLA will also host two dedicated programs featuring comedy short films cherry picked from hundreds of entries. The programs are curated to show the emerging standards and range of what is funny from seasoned writers and performers.
The night closes with the West Coast premiere of the cleverly written feature film 'Delinquent, by Kieran Valla, a thrilling and dramatic exploration of a teenager, played flawlessly by Alex Shaffer, and his struggle to manage the fall-out of a robbery gone wrong.
In between programs, you will have the opportunity to meet and mingle with the filmmakers and industry supporters over cocktails and beats at the filmmakers' lounge inside the private entry to the 500 seat theater of the South Park Center in Downtown Los Angeles.
Each film program is $5 pre-sale online or $7 at the door. Alternatively, attendees can purchase an all-access pass providing VIP access to all 4 film programs, the reception and an open bar including Tito's Vodka, Karl Strauss Beer, wine and more!
