Los Angeles LIFT-OFF FILM FESTIVAL returns to cut through the trials of a global pandemic by serving up a treasure trove of independent film, delivered and available to enjoy from the safety and comfort of your own home.
In traditional Lift-Off fashion, we bring true independent film from emerging artists around the globe, connecting the US and international markets. Our aim to maximise artist's connection with audience, and provide an experimental platform for indie creatives to help nurture voices and launch careers.
A mixture of new voices, trendsetter feature narratives and genre bending shorts; for the first time in Lift-Off's history, we bring you a programme of online-only content with our partners Vimeo OnDemand.
LOS ANGELES LIFT-OFF FILM FESTIVAL 2020, STARTS SUNDAY 13th SEPTEMBER.
