As Pride month draws to a close, we’re taking a look back at NewFilmmakers Los Angeles InFocus: LGBTQ+ Cinema Film Festival, which took place on June 1st at NFMLA headquarters in the AT&T Center in Downtown LA. The event celebrated its annual InFocus: LGBTQ+ Cinema program. The day consisted of two InFocus: LGBTQ+ shorts programs showcasing a diverse range of exciting work from emerging LGBTQ+ creators whose films have screened at a variety of festivals including writer-director Benjamin Howard’s queer coming-of-age feature film, Riley.

The Golden Globe Foundation supports NFMLA’s Monthly InFocus Film Festival program. The InFocus diversity initiative seeks to combat the lack of diversity in the film industry by giving underrepresented groups of filmmakers (i.e. race, ethnicity, region, age, gender, differently-abled status, sexual identity/orientation, indigenous heritage, cultural and socioeconomic background) the opportunity to showcase their work and connect with industry professionals during the Monthly Festival.
