NewFilmmakers Los Angeles Virtual Film Festival – June 5th – 7th

 June 5th – 7th | Friday, 3pm PT – Sunday, 10pm PT

NewFilmmakers Los Angeles (NFMLA) showcases and champions emerging filmmakers and diverse storytellers from around the world. In response to the COVID-19 crisis, they’ve moved our programming to virtual platforms. This includes the NFMLA Monthly Film Festival, now powered by Seed&Spark. This edition will include short and feature film programs, Q&A’s, panels and selections from our InFocus initiative which combats the lack of diversity in media.

On June 5th, they’ll be hosting three panels. They’re listed below.

  • NFMLA and Pipelines Panel – Studio,
  • Network and Commercial Opportunities
- Panel + Q&A | Diversifying Your Talent Pool
  • NFMLA Panel | Breaking Into Episodic TV Writing

On June 6th, they’ll be hosting our InFocus: Female Cinema Film Festival, which includes two shorts programs rich with a variety of stories, genres and perspectives from female filmmakers, along with Romance Analyst, an exciting new feature by writer-director Rachel Wortell.

On June 7th, their InFocus will be Asian Cinema with a pair of shorts programs featuring work by talented Asian and Asian-American directors, including three world premieres. The day’s programming concludes with polyamorous dramedy First Blush, the feature film debut of director Victor Neumark.

Each screening will be followed by live Q&A’s via Zoom. Moderators include Emily V Gordon (co-writer of The Big Sick) and Jeff Yang (Journalist at CNN and Head of Global Futures).
