Announcing a new, invite-only, monthly Los Angeles – which aims to:– initially in
- showcase newer that are doing the DIY Distribution rounds
- support the filmmakers by aligning them with new audiences outside the industry
- give potential non-industry audiences exposure to this new wave of content in an accessible and hip context
We are targeting taste-makers outside of theas our core audience, and we are fully committed to showcasing content that is doing the independent distribution route. We’re hoping that as a result, we can help further nudge the dialogue surrounding this distribution revolution outside of the usual circles, and help pave the road towards collaboration and conversation with other industries.
We – also – aim to donate half of the proceeds back to the filmmakers (after the inaugural screening).
So, in practice: The first Tuesday of every month, at the Echo Park Film Center in Los Angeles, we will show a new indie film. We’ll also have a speaker, tasked with presenting an idea in ten minutes or less. Costs $5 to get in with passcode, and bring something to drink.

A ten minute talk about the business of film,
and an (independent) film to applaud.
