Listen up, cinephiles. Don't miss out on this year's edition of the NewFilmmakers Los Angeles Festival, celebrating Latinx and Hispanic cinema as part of the InFocus series for Hispanic Heritage Month. Together with the Academy of Motion Pictures and Sciences, the NFMLA will host a three-part short film program highlighting emerging filmmakers from Mexico, Brazil, Peru, Spain, Colombia, Chile, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Argentina and the U.S.
The evening kicks off at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills with a cocktail reception, where you can mingle with industry luminaries before the screenings begin. Then settle into the carefully curated short film program, which includes the world premiere of director Jonathan Ostos Yaber's The Morphable Man, Synopsis featuring Brazilian actor Gabriel Godoy, and Sra. Genovese from filmmaker Daniela Arguello. Advanced ticket purchases are $5 per program, while admission is $7 at the door. All-night access passes are $15 and includes open bar.
