The LA Film Fest wrapped a week ago and I finished my last day as an intern yesterday. My immediate thoughts? Wow, was the entire experience a blast!
First off, if you live in the Los Angeles area I would definitely recommend attending/volunteering/interning at next year’s LA Film Fest. The lineup this year was exceptionally diverse and exciting – a reflection of Film Independent’s dedication to supporting filmmakers and stories that are diverse and innovative – and I can only imagine that next year’s selection will be even better.
I’m thankful for the opportunity to meet so many interesting and passionate people at the festival, and I’m also grateful that I had the chance to experience something that truly embodies the spirit of Los Angeles within my first three months living here.
Overall, one of the best perks of being an intern was that I was able to attend events! During the festival I wrote about a few of the screenings and talks I attended, which you can check out below:
Long story short, I had a spectacular time and advise any and all locals/visitors to check out next year’s lineup. And as always, thanks for reading!
