Rock the Shorts Film Festival – March 7th, 12pm

Rock the Shorts Film Festival – click here for the festival website!

About the festival:

The founders of Rock the Shorts are both filmmakers and huge fans of short films. Shorts can pack an emotional punch and take us on a wonderful ride in 40 minutes or less. We feel the creators of such entertainment deserve recognition and encouragement.

When your film is an “Official Selection” at a well-organized film festival it is the most gratifying experience. This is what we want to bring to you. Our goal is to further inspire you to keep creating…keep writing…keep directing…keep producing…keep acting…keep telling stories…keep making short films!

LA Dance Film Festival – February 8th, 6pm

LA Dance Film Festival – February 8th

Screening 6:00 PM, Awards Show 8:00 PM

The LA Dance Film Festival was founded in 2016 with the intention of creating more opportunities for dance filmmakers and increase visibility of dance film as an art form. We accept a variety of film genres with the stipulation that dance is utilized as the main storytelling component.

Dance film is a genre of cinematic storytelling created through movement. In contrast to traditional dialogue-driven films, dance films offer new ways to connect with characters and ideas that are beyond words. While dance film has been produced for decades, we found it was surprisingly underrepresented in Los Angeles.

LADFF aims to expand local creation, collaboration and viewership through exhibiting extraordinary international dance films, connecting filmmakers and providing new opportunities for emerging artists.

Tickets available here!
