SEEfest-Produced Short Selected for Oct 5 NewFilmmakers ON LOCATION Showcase Celebrating the City of Los Angeles
Los Angeles, 10 September 2019 – Short film entirely produced by SEEfest team of volunteers and directed by Vera Mijojlić, has been selected to screen as part of ON LOCATION: The Los Angeles Video Project at Sunset Las Palmas Studios in Hollywood on Saturday, October 5th, 2019.
Hosted by NewFilmmakers Los Angeles (NFMLA), the 2019 On Location film competition includes stories in narrative, documentary, commercial or animation format celebrating the City of LA and answering the question, “What is your LA?”
NewFilmmakers’s event is expected to highlight finalists with over a million views, a red carpet premiere screening event at Sunset Studios in Hollywood with 750+ attendees, a celebrity judging panel with press interviews, an after-party, and over $60,000 in prizes, including cash.
The title of SEEfest’s original short documentary about Los Angeles is “Festival of the City.” “We wanted to create a cinematic love letter to Los Angeles by visiting out-of-the-way locations not featured on the star tourist maps,” says Mijojlić. “Los Angeles is a sprawling kaleidoscope of ethnic and cultural diversity, and with our film, we celebrate this cosmopolitan spirit shared by all people.”
For this year’s On Location program, NFMLA has partnered with LA City Councilmember Bob Blumenfield, LA City Councilmember Mitch O’Farrell, Sunset Studios, Cinelease, KTLA, The Central Hollywood Neighborhood Council, SAG-AFTRA, FilmLA, Hollywood Foreign Press Association, The California Film Commission, Alternative Camera Rentals, HBO, and many others.
