Join NewFilmmakers Los Angeles (NFMLA) on Saturday, November 18th in celebrating independent cinema! The first program showcases 5 fantastic shorts by emerging filmmakers. From a sci-fi about memories, an NBA comeback story, to a Fugitive-esque murder mystery, this program features eccentric narratives that are sure to keep the audience on the edge of their seats. Our second program of the night is another installment of InFocus: Asian American Filmmakers - Growing Up in America. This program showcases the LA Premier of the thought-provoking feature film Knowing Nothing Cold by the talented auteur Jeff Kao. Telling the story about several teenagers coming of age in the Midwest in an avant-garde manner, Kao's film is certain to challenge and emotionally-stimulate the viewer. Closing out the night is another shorts program that includes 7 remarkable shorts from game-changing filmmakers. These stories range from a sci-fi romance about time travel, a Blade Runner-esque muppet short, and an experimental art film that makes the audience play the role of the detective at a crime scene. Throughout the event, attendees will have opportunities to mingle with the filmmakers, industry supporters and film lovers over cocktails in the Filmmaker Lounge at the South Park Center in Downtown Los Angeles.
