“This event provides a wonderful showcase for Los Angeles’ remarkable pool of filmmaking talent,” says NewFilmmakers Los Angeles director Larry Laboe. “It also celebrates the many things that make our city unique. This year’s line-up of films was our strongest yet, and highlighted the city’s diversity of people, neighborhoods and communities from unique insiders’ perspectives.” The event’s 21 finalists competed for cash and prizes valued at more than $60,000.00. Directors Andrew Schneider and Cody Autterson won the Grand Prize for their film A Day in Los Angeles.

“We couldn’t have been happier with the event,” says Hollywood Center Studios’ JL Singer. “I’ve attended dozens of NewFilmmaker LA’s screenings and was honored that they chose Hollywood Center Studios as their platform to showcase these talented filmmakers’ stories and to have this opportunity to introduce ourselves to the next generation of young filmmakers.”
