The main goal of Cinema Los Angeles is to present the most exciting and inspiring new works on film being made today.
And equally, to promote an understanding and appreciation of the world through moving pictures.
SUPPORT FOR INDEPENDENT STORYTELLERS
At the Festival’s core is a commitment to champion the creation of unique work by individual storytellers.
Through ticketed events, open applications, and by invitation, we offer workshops with accomplished professionals, and ongoing support to advance the development and production of independent work.
We encourage artists from around the world to apply for our Programs.
The Feature Film Program embraces the discovery and development of independent filmmakers, encouraging a rigorous creative process with a focus on original and deeply resonant storytelling.
The Documentary Film Program supports the development, production and presentation of nonfiction films around the world.
We have witnessed an explosion in the opportunities available for writers developing episodic content for Internet use and online platforms.
Open to all artists, and held around the country, Workshops and Day Labs offer participants premium resources and expert advice on topics ranging from screenwriting to digital distribution.
These intensive versions of our Lab experience provide opportunities for artists to be inspired in their storytelling and empowered to advance their projects to the next phase.
