We are extremely sad to announce that in light of the international situation regarding the COVID-19 virus, we will unfortunately have to postpone our LA Festival of Cinema 2020 March screening to a later date.

We will continue to update our Facebook page and website as we have more information from local authorities and the CDC.

Please know we are devoting all our resources to finding a better solution (one that minimises the risk of infection while, at the same time, rewarding all your hard work).
We are here for any questions or comments you may have. However, we kindly ask for your patience.
