Los Angeles, California - USA
Monthly Screening Series
In the Spotlight today is the 10th Annual NewFilmmakers Los Angeles (NFMLA), a monthly screening platform for features, shorts, docs, new media, and Angeleno-driven cinema to reach new audiences that are eager to discover the next gifted storyteller. NFMLA invites emerging filmmaking talents from around the world to network with respected industry professionals, press outlets, and cinema fans in the entertainment industry's epicenter.
Each screening at NFMLA is followed by a Q&A that connects directors with inquisitive and impassioned film lovers, resulting in countless opportunities for dynamic discussion. The monthly festival format allows the festival to dedicate time and attention to the films selected - by curating ten to fifteen films, the festival is dedicated to giving each filmmaker the spotlight they deserve with press attention to match. All filmmakers selected for the festival are guaranteed coverage from media outlets such as MovieMaker Magazine . Record/Play a short from filmmaker Jesse Atlas was green lit for feature development after screening at NFMLA with support from Focus Features and American Hustle producers Richard Suckle and Charles Roven.
Thanks to strong partnerships with the Sony Pictures Entertainment, Film LA, Dreamworks, SAG-AFTRA, LA Weekly, and South Park Center, NFMLA is proud to offer more than $60,000 USD in prizes, each year -- including $3,500 in cash awards. With red-carpet screenings, and a special after-party that seamlessly integrates Hollywood pros with up-and-coming talents, NFMLA offers an unforgettable festival experience that helps breed results.

NFMLA is a non-profit organization designed to showcase innovative works created by emerging filmmakers from around the world.
MORE ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
NFMLA alum Marc Havener raves, "I consider NewFilmmakers as one of the better experiences for my film. Out of the 50 festivals it played - I keep laurels from NFMLA front and center. Having a Los Angeles screening for And What Remains in the heart of Hollywood at such a legitimate venue brought legitimacy to the film in the eyes of my peers and colleagues. I couldn't believe how many of them showed up to this screening."
