Los Angeles Filmforum

Fund: $25,000

Founded in 1975, Los Angeles Filmforum is the city’s longest running organization that regularly screens artist-driven, hand-crafted experimental films and video art, documentaries, and animation. Filmforum promotes a greater understanding of media art, and the role of the artists and curators who create and present it, by providing a forum for independently produced, noncommercial works that have little opportunity of reaching the general public. Consistently collaborating with other organizations, Filmforum showcases alternative media, featuring voices and visions of truly independent media artists from Los Angeles and beyond. Filmforum exposes diverse audiences to a range of artistic expressions, cultural perspectives and critical inquiries.
