Executive Director Larry Laboe and the incredible staff at NewFilmmakers Los Angeles (NFMLA) have been cultivating & providing an invaluable resource for LA's film community for the past decade. I consider my upcoming screening with their new DocuSlate program as a homecoming of sorts, as NFMLA was the first Los Angeles-based festival I submitted my work to coming out of film school. As my latest offering, The Duel, nears the end of its festival run, I'm honored to be welcomed back into the same community that has provided me with so much support over the years, and look forward to sharing my new works with them for years to come.
DocuSlate, presented by NewFilmmakers Los Angeles in partnership with the International Documentary Association, will be held at the South Park Center on December 2nd. From their website:
"Each year, NFMLA receives thousands of submissions. Programming selections are based not only on the merits of a project but are designed to fulfill the criteria in regard to our mission, considerations for the Best of NFMLA Awards, and to ensure that NFMLA delivers diverse and original content consistently to the standard that we have upheld for the past 10 years."
"We are especially affected by the overwhelming flood of incredible documentary projects of important topics & unforgettable stories that we have been unable to place due to the limited festival programming slots available. As a result NFMLA is pleased to present DocuSlate, an entire day dedicated to documentary films."
The program starts at 10:30 and lasts all day long! Tickets available at: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/newfilmmakers-los-angeles-nfmla-annual-docuslate-december-2nd-2017-tickets-39670529622
