The Los Angeles Diversity Films Festival is kicking off in West Hollywood on Thursday, July 26, 2018, with a selection of short films from local and international filmmakers followed by a Q&A and party at the Let Live Theater, The Actors Company, 916 N. Formosa Ave
West Hollywood, from 8pm-12am
The film festival continues Friday, July 27 and Saturday July 28 with a wide array of screenings blocks including LGBTQ; Female Filmmakers, Action and International Documentaries.
The mission of the Los Angeles Diversity Films Festival is to provide filmmakers, actors, and stories of diverse backgrounds with a place to showcase their voice without judgment or insincere reflection; free of stereotypes and degradation. Our goal is to establish a true multicultural experience represented by the world’s independent film community.
Festival founder Hollis McLachlan has been involved in the film community for almost two decades. She was inspired with the idea of creating the Los Angeles Diversity Film Festival after recognizing that if emphasis is placed on authenticating literature for children, there should be the same process held accountable for film. McLachlan’s goal is to promote films that share accurate portrayal and reflection of life, without stereotype or degradation, for children and adults alike.
