Free Screening: Ghetto Film School Los Angeles
Includes a conversation with student filmmakers
The Annual GFS LA Fellows Screening showcases outstanding new work from the 2015–17 Fellows Class. The screening features ten short narrative films (non-dialogue, six minutes each) curated by the Fellows themselves, followed by a student filmmaker Q&A with Film Independent at LACMA Curator Elvis Mitchell. A screening jury of leading filmmakers and industry professionals will award the top three films with scholarship prizes.
GFS LA is a groundbreaking initiative, created through a partnership between Ghetto Film School and 21st Century Fox, that brings GFS’ award-winning Fellows Program to diverse young storytellers throughout Los Angeles. The Fellows Program is a free, rigorous 30-month college-level pre-professional immersion in digital storytelling and production training.
